Native title and cultural heritage matters
We provide specialist advice and negotiation services in relation to native tile, land access, pastoral and cultural heritage matters.
This includes representing parties in native title claims and negotiations, gathering and assessing evidence in native title claims, implementing native title or cultural heritage agreements and mediation services. We can also provide assistance to Native Title Representative Bodies and Service Providers in relation to funding applications, including independent external reviews.
One particular specialty of MPS law’s Principal Solicitor, Michael Pagsanjan, is native title compensation, with Michael negotiating the settlement of Australia's first successful native title compensation consent determination in Australia.
Our native title and cultural heritage services are charged at below commercial rates for native title claimants and native title service providers and representative bodies.
