Native Title and Aboriginal Legal Rights

Berg Lawyers is passionate about assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People in relation to the recognition of their claims for lands, water and cultural property. Our expertise involves negotiating arrangements between Indigenous People and the State, and conducting litigation where alternative dispute resolution is not suitable. Shaun Berg, the principal of Berg Lawyers, conducted the litigation resulting in the High Court decision in Karpany v. Dietman [2013] HCA 47. This decision resulted in the recognition of the native title right to fish in South Australia and the operation of Section 211 of the Native Title Act (1993).
