Climate Change litigation launch gift

15 February, 2011

EDO Qld was delighted to receive a generous donation for climate change litigation-welcomes new team members! 

These extra resources are crucial, as Queensland needs to rapidly transition to a society based on renewable energy.

The donation will enable employment of two additional staff solicitors, Sean Ryan and Revel Pointon.

  • Revel Pointon is  fresh from sustainability work in Mexico and formerly worked in planning and environment at Minter Ellison, Gold Coast. Revel started on 31 January 2011.
  • Sean Ryan leaves his role as Senior Associate at Corrs Chambers Westgarth to join EDO on 21 February 2011. Sean will bring many years of experience in litigation and scientific qualifications to EDO Qld.

Environmental Defenders Office Queensland (EDO Qld) gives a strong legal voice to the environment when needed most.
