Mining and Resources: Mining
Mining companies face a range of challenges. Health, safety, and environmental issues. Complex regulatory due diligence. Cybersecurity risks. Weakened commodity prices. At Hogan Lovells, we work with mining clients in all aspects of the industry. Our global footprint allows us to advise in key jurisdictions for mining operations and outbound investment.
Supported by innovative solutions for corporate transactions, finance (including streaming transactions), securities, mine development, concessions, dispute resolution, intellectual property, and cyber risk, we anticipate issues before they become problems. Our clients include both privately and publicly traded mining companies engaged in mineral development. This includes the gold, copper, coal, silver, nickel, diamond, molybdenum, uranium, and platinum industries across the globe.
