Katherine Forward


I am a senior lawyer with extensive experience in all aspects of environmental and resource management law. I deliver commercially relevant and client focussed advice to environmental problems in any context - corporate transactions, development projects, day to day operations, planning/ policy and prosecution.  

Recent project experience includes

  • wastewater treatment and disposal in relation to a Regional community wastewater scheme,
  • irrigation development and nutrient management in the contentious Mackenzie Basin, and
  • urban development including advice on planning, contaminated land, heritage and cultural issues in relation to the Christchurch city rebuild.

I am a member of the New Zealand Law Society, the Resource Management Law Association and the New Zealand Institute of Primary Industry Management. Duncan Cotterill is an Associate member of Horticulture New Zealand and Irrigation New Zealand.
