The national construction and property firm has bolstered its environment and planning group with the appointment.
Yesterday Rebecca Davie was announced as special counsel for Blackstone Waterhouse, where she will serve as co-lead of the firm’s environment and planning group.
Her appointment strengthens the firm’s depth and “whole of project” delivery experience, according to a statement, given her particular expertise in contaminated land liability, environmental incidents and waste regulation.
Blackstone Waterhouse managing partner Danny Arraj – with whom Ms Davie will lead the environment and planning group – said the firm was pleased with the appointment and the breadth of experience she would bring to the table.
“Rebecca’s technical and legal background in the environmental space is a unique offering,” he said.
“I am confident that Rebecca will deliver results for our clients.”
Ms Davie added that she was excited to be joining a fast-growing, innovative legal practice.
“The team here is already highly regarded in property, planning and construction,” she said.
“I look forward to bringing my expertise to the team to further build its growth and success.”
Ms Davie has joined the firm following 12 years at Clayton Utz.
