This is the profile of Nicholas at Henry Davis York. He is a big shot in the field by the looks, and look especially at this in bold bit. He is clearly aligned to big business in his normal career. Which could be a good help or hindrance. Very hard to say without evidence one way or the other.

Nicholas Brunton

Nicholas practises in all areas of planning, environmental and valuation law.

Nicholas' work includes strategic planning advice, negotiating with consent authorities, advising on major projects, advising on contaminated land matters, and preparing environmental legal risk management programs and systems for clients including conducting training, seminars and drafting legal risk management tools and guidelines.
He advises State Government agencies on all aspects of valuation and compensation law including conducting class 3 litigation in the Land and Environment Court. He acts for clients in planning appeals in the Land and Environment Court and defends prosecutions for air, water and marine pollution offences.

Nicholas' clients include banks, mining companies, construction companies, developers and a range of government agencies and corporations.

Nicholas has a PhD in planning and environmental law and lectures on environmental law and policy at the University of Sydney, Macquarie University and the University of New South Wales.

He has published over 20 articles on various aspects of environmental and planning law and is a "Highly Recommended Individual" in PLC Which Lawyer? 2008 for Environment law advice.
Here is a picture of Ron Brunton next to Nicholas from different sources (see picture above). Very likely related. Have put a call out for more information.
Ron Brunton wrote this back in 2001:
This article is mostly rubbish, and funded by big business, but reads very plausible. Ron Brunton is a very sincere and determined enemy of the organised environment movement. What about Nicholas? Keep on reading I guess.
Yours truly, Tom McLoughlin, solicitor in NSW
