The main case currently under way in the Supreme Court of WA concerns tenements known as Hope Downs, where Rio Tinto and Gina Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting have developed two iron ore projects.

Wright recruits top lawyer

Private Perth company Wright Prospecting has bolstered its already impressive ranks with the recruitment of top lawyer Peter Wiese, who will guide it through continuing legal disputes with Hancock Prospecting.

Mr Wiese will join Wright as group general counsel after a 45-year career with Clayton Utz.

He joined the firm as an articled clerk in 1972 when it was known as Robinson Cox, was made a partner in 1976, and for many years has been considered one of Perth’s top corporate and resources lawyers.
