Advisory

In our advisory role we can help customary landowners understand the financial dilemma of rendering customary interests in land into modern commercial terms.  We understand the customary consideration that land is part of an ethical-spiritual-legal matrix of rights, obligations and community relations .

Our roles include financial, legal and property rights advice to ensure a sustainable and intergenerational return to the guardians of the land.

Our advice helps customary landowners understand the value of their land resources, water resources and minerals from a social and ecological, as well as economic,  perspective.  This allows landowning groups to be fully informed when negotiating with the state or mining interests wanting to utilise their customary land.
