Local Government, Planning & Environment

Kells' lawyers have acted for and against local councils and state agencies for over 40 years. We are currently retained to act for a number of greater metropolitan and rural councils and state agencies. We also regularly act for other clients who have disputes with other councils.
Paul Magagnino is the partner responsible for the team, which works closely with the firm's commercial and property specialists to provide the firm's commercial clients with complete and comprehensive advice. We are a one-stop-shop when it comes to property development - from advising on corporate structures and investment vehicles, to obtaining necessary planning approvals, and the purchase and sale of property.
