IMBEWU works on sustainability legal and policy issues for a broad range of clients. These include a number of environmental consultancies, large industrial and mining clients, small to medium sized industrial operations, foreign embassies, non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), international agencies and government departments and agencies.
IMBEWU recognises the importance of assisting persons or groupings whose primary objectives may be to protect the environment, but who may be unable to afford to pay environmental lawyers. Such persons often help in developing the law by undertaking court action that may set legal precedents and by encouraging other individuals or groups to enforce their environmental rights. IMBEWU has assisted or is currently assisting the following persons or groups on a pro bono basis:
- Residents Associations;
- Ad hoc guidance to students who wish to pursue a career in the environmental field;
- Ad hoc advice to individuals on their environmental legal rights.
IMBEWU collaborates with the law firm Warburton Attorneys in order to provide specialist environmental litigation and other legal services, including commercial services and providing attorney client privilege, where appropriate.
