Richard Carew is a former partner with Brisbane based law firm Carew Lawyers.
He acted for a number of environment groups and individuals, including Indigenous owners, who in 2010, in the Queensland Court of Appeal, successfully prevented an expansion of Sibelco’s interests on North Stradbroke Island into the (lawful) sale of non-mineral sand.
The brackets were inserted around "lawful" above because SIbelco faced criminal charges relating to the unlawful sale of non-mineral sand. The prosecution commenced in 2009.
