Natural Resources

By working with many of the leading global and local industry players on their commercial, dispute resolution, corporate and transactional needs, we have developed a very good understanding of the business and legal intricacies that mining and metals companies face on a daily basis. Our mining and metals team covers every aspect of the industry and every stage of the project life cycle. We tailor our approach to meet the particular needs of every client by drawing on lawyers from across the firm’s practice areas.
