Phil Page is our senior environmental and resource management law expert.

Phil has specialised in resource management, environmental and local government law since 1996. He also has experience in civil and commercial litigation, as well as cases involving valuation of rural land, including pastoral leases.

"The way we think about natural resources is very dynamic. There are always new issues with land use and the natural environment," Phil says. "It's a huge subject, and I enjoy the variety, meeting interesting people and learning new things about what they do. Success is often about tapping into the right expertise at the right time, and we have worked with some extraordinarily talented people in this region.”

Phil spends time in the hills and open spaces both in his job and as a keen multisport athlete. This passion for his playground translates into excellent client service: "I have a hands-on approach to the way I prepare cases. In all things, planning and preparation is crucial. My clients get my undivided attention,” he says.
