Jeff Lynn is a partner in our planning, environment and first nations practice

Jeff practices in the areas of environmental, planning and climate change law. He acts for a wide range of public and private sector clients but his practice is principally focussed on the energy, resources, infrastructure and waste industries.

Jeff regularly assists clients to obtain environmental and planning approvals for projects (including acting in litigation arising from these approvals) and the legal aspects of environmental investigations and incident management. Jeff advises on the environmental aspects of asset closure and site remediation and redevelopment.

Jeff is also a leading advisor in relation to climate change law, and the regulatory and commercial risks and opportunities created by climate change. He assisted many large businesses with the introduction and repeal of the carbon tax and advises clients on the strategic issues arising from the Paris Agreement and the evolving domestic carbon policy landscape.

Jeff is the chair of our Melbourne Office Environment Committee and a member of our Champions of Change program.

Jeff leads the Ashurst team working with Melbourne University's Sustainability Business Clinic, which was short-listed for a Victorian Premier's Sustainability Award in 2015.
