About the Salmon Lecture

The annual Salmon Lecture series was established in 2002 by the Auckland branch of the Resource Management Law Association of New Zealand Inc (RMLA), in honour of Justice Peter Salmon QC, the inaugural RMLA President.

A word from our Sponsor, Berry Simons

“Berry Simons is delighted to support the RMLA through our sponsorship of the Salmon Lecture. It is particularly fitting that the lecture is presented by Rachel de Lambert who is a good friend of the firm and with whom we have done a great of work over the years, including a recent Special Housing Area application. We have enormous respect for Rachel and look forward to hearing her words of wisdom.”

Berry Simons is a boutique specialist Environmental law firm, started in 2012 by Simon Berry and Sue Simons. Renowned for its high success rate on RMA issues and for its meticulous management of client matters, the firm is also recognised for providing innovative and strategic solutions to complex problems and leading edge projects – many of which are highly contentious.

“We concentrate as much on finding solutions outside the hearing room as to succeeding on our clients’ behalf in at hearings.  Our experience and expertise means we know when a more direct approach is required.”

Berry Simons’ experience and depth of talent rivals that of the Resource Management teams of major firms. We are the natural alternative to them. Our team includes red-hot young talent and it’s these up and coming lawyers who are the engine room of legal efficiency of the practice. However, our boutique nature and operating principles ensure that partners are always on hand for clients, and fully involved with all work we undertake.

Our deep expertise spans the full spectrum of Environmental law, including consenting of and advice on: large scale residential and mixed use development; retail and commercial development; geothermal, thermal and wind power generation projects; water and wastewater; energy distribution infrastructure; retirement village development; marinas and aquaculture; and liquor licensing.
