We have considerable experience of acting for corporates in all phases of the mining & natural resources lifecycle, from exploration and development through to closure, in the world’s resource rich markets.
The increasing scarcity of the world’s resources continues to compel the extractive industries to work in new and challenging jurisdictions and environments such as Africa and Latin America. Our international network provides an integrated and comprehensive service on a global basis enabling us to guide our clients through the issues and difficulties facing the mining industry today, such as resource nationalism, environmental and community concerns.
We advise on all aspects of the mining and extractives supply chain, on both contentious and non-contentious issues.
In particular, we have depth of experience of advising on corporate transactions in the sector, including high-value M&A, joint ventures and financings, and are adept at managing business critical, cross-border, big-ticket litigation and arbitration.
Our lawyers have acted for governments, mine owners and operators, engineering consultants, traders, banks and other financial institutions, insurers and reinsurers and the transportation and storage companies that move mineral commodities from mine to market.
