Complemented by deep industry relationships and leadership on pertinent industry issues – like responding to the implications of climate change and ESG – our offering is truly unrivalled.

You can be confident that we understand the industry. Our team advises clients across the globe on all aspects of mining: from exploration and approvals through to social licence issues, M&A, financing, mine development and construction, process plants, infrastructure, shipping, marketing, productivity improvements, and mine care and maintenance or closure.

Our clients trust us with their most important mining transactions, disputes and projects because of our ability to cut through complexity and propose solutions. This would not be possible without our deep investment in developing strong client relationships. We focus on getting to know our mining clients and their projects, understanding their objectives, and developing bespoke, commercial solutions. We know that with the scale and timeframes of investment in the mining industry, our clients need us to be looking ahead, helping them to plan for future developments in the regulatory and business environment before they arise.
