Queensland Law Society

2019 Call to Parties Statement

7. Assist businesses, including law firms

Queensland law firms advise business and are businesses themselves. Focusing regulation and reducing both red-tape and financial pressure on business is much needed in difficult economic conditions.

Queensland Law Society calls for a commitment to:

  1. review the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 to achieve a balanced, clear and effective issues-focused environmental assessment and approvals framework
  2. harmonisation of data and revenue collection responsibilities for legal practitioners by the federal and state agencies, including adequate time frames for consultation and the introduction of new measures.
