Established natural resource specialists combining international expertise with local knowledge
We have considerable experience of acting on all aspects of the natural resources lifecycle, from discovery through to closure, in the world’s resource rich markets.
The increasing scarcity of the world’s resources continues to force the extractive industries to work in new and challenging jurisdictions and environments. Our far reaching 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 and on all aspects of the mining process including mining risks.
Our clients include governments, mine owners and operators, engineering consultants, traders, banks and other financial institutions, insurers and reinsurers and the transportation and storage companies that move goods from mine to market.
Supporting the mining and natural resources market on the varied and complex issues that go hand-in-hand with mining operations
The natural resources sector still operates within an increasingly complex matrix of jurisdictions, compliance regimes and national protection. Managing all these requirements across the world can present many challenges especially since a large proportion of the world’s resources are in markets that can be both volatile and unpredictable. As ever, all will depend on the people on the ground and we can help to support management, HR departments and employees so that they can cope with the complex issues associated with being an employer in this sector.
In today’s global economy, all international businesses need advice that offers integrated solutions to their global employment issues, particularly when they are working across jurisdictions and juggling different regulatory requirements.
Our experienced employment practices in the UK, the Middle East, across Asia-Pacific and in Brazil have a long track record of advising both local and international businesses on employment issues, employee benefits and immigration law.
