Phi Finney McDonald holds government and businesses accountable to their legal responsibilities to protect the environment.

Climate litigation is in increasing in Australia, as pressure increases on governments and business to meet their legal obligations on climate change and the environment.  Despite having the highest greenhouse gas emissions per capita of any industrialised nation, the Commonwealth government and Australia’s biggest polluters have failed to act consistent with scientific evidence on climate change.  Accordingly, Australians are turning to the courts to enforce government and corporate accountability.

Phi Finney McDonald’s years of experience in strategic litigation and complex class actions brings creativity to the environmental and climate litigation space. We are proud to represent Pabai Pabai and Paul Kabai, two First Nations leaders from the Torres Strait fighting to save their home of 70,000 years in an Australian-first climate class action.

If successful, this landmark case could help protect Torres Strait Islanders and all Australians from climate change.
