We have acted for some of the world’s leading international mining and metals companies, and provide commercial solutions for investors and other stakeholders, in both established and emerging markets.
We assist clients through all phases of a mining project, including exploration and development, financing, expansions and acquisitions and sales.
Our expertise in M&A and financing, as well as related tax issues, are of particular importance to our clients in this field, especially so in times of significant financing and liquidity constraints. Within this sector, our lawyers advise on issues ranging from private and public M&A, share and asset sales, joint ventures, privatizations, corporate reorganization and refinancing, as well as general tax planning arising from M&A and corporate restructuring tax planning, operations, transactions and compliance.
We have acted for, inter alia, En+ Group Limited, Tigers Realm Coal, Atalaya Mining Plc, Barrick Gold Corp, and one of the biggest potash fertilizer producers and exporters in the world.
Our comprehensive knowledge, global reach (through our firm’s Lex Mundi and WSG memberships) and multi-disciplinary expertise enable us to bring together the right people, with the right skills, to provide solid advice in the wide range of transactions and other assignments, that arise in the typical life cycle of a mine and metal production process.
