Australia: Clayton Utz launches new edition of "Successful Delivery of Resources Projects"
Last Updated: 8 May 2013

Sydney, 6 May 2013:Clayton Utz has released a revised edition of its popular legal text Successful Delivery of Mining Projects, a practical guide for project stakeholders on the diverse range of legal issues and risks they may encounter in projects and how to factor these into their decision-making.

Now titled Successful Delivery of Resources Projects, the publication is a collaborative, firm-wide effort that draws on the significant experience of Clayton Utz' partners and lawyers across a range of practice areas, including Major Projects and Construction, Energy and Resources, Government, Environment and Planning, Corporate / M&A, Native Title, Litigation and Dispute Resolution and Workplace Relations.

The revised edition of the text includes several new chapters, including on carbon capture and storage, carbon risks in projects, real property and intellectual property issues, bilateral investment treaties, and the restructuring of troubled projects.

Clayton Utz Construction and Major Projects partner Andrew Stephenson, a specialist in construction related disputes who generated the idea for Successful Delivery of Resources Projects, said it drew on the firm's broad experience in providing strategic, commercial and whole-of-project-cycle advice to mining, energy and resources industry participants. "We were overwhelmed by the response to the first edition of the publication, both in Australia and abroad. It confirmed our view that there was a need for a publication which provides a comprehensive overview of all the key legal issues that project participants are likely to encounter, including relevant legislative and regulatory frameworks."

The national head of Clayton Utz' Energy and Resources practice, Graeme Dennis, said the publication reflected the central role the resources sector will continue to have in the Australian economy. "We hope Successful Delivery of Resources Projects will contribute to a greater understanding of the legal environment in which projects have to be delivered - and ultimately, to their successful delivery."

Clayton Utz has one of the largest dedicated Energy and Resources and Construction and Major Projects practices in Australia and the largest Major Projects practice in South-East Asia, specialising in advice on the diverse legal issues arising from all types of significant energy and construction projects.
