Mallesons Stephen Jaques has acted for Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS) in its bid to have a long-term coal export plan approved for the Hunter Valley by the NSW Government.

Competition partner Dave Poddar led the negations for PWCS with senior associate Wayne Leach. Poddar said in a statement that his work revolved around working with the Government and the Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG), while also advising PWCS on competition issues.
