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.
Our global transport infrastructure group has a proven track record to support you in the demand for mining and natural resources
We have a wide experience of working on mining projects (as demonstrated by the USD 20 billion Simandou South mine, rail and port project and the USD billion plus Tonkolili project). Demographic shifts and increasing demand for energy and natural resources brings both familiar and unprecedented challenges to infrastructure participants. We support the development of the mining and natural resource supply chain by helping clients across the full life cycle of projects, from planning to funding (including PPP/PFI), development (including airports, ports, rail and road) and operation to refinancing and sale.
We understand the unique sector characteristics across both developed and emerging market, advising on significant infrastructure projects in both markets, we deliver expertise in the natural resources sector.
Our geographical strength, especially in Africa, CIS, South America and other emerging markets, means that we combine our international expertise with local law input, including a detailed understanding of key issues surrounding local mining rights.
