Mining and Metals
Allen & Overy's global Mining and Metals group has acted for some of the world's major international mining and metals companies, offering a team of internationally renowned legal experts.
Their market leading experience includes advising on a number of industry 'firsts' and major innovative transactions. Our global team's expertise extends to advising clients in a range of businesses from mining (non-ferrous, precious metals and other minerals) to smelting, refining, trading and semi-manufacturing.
The combination of our experience across the full life cycle of a mine – from acquisition and financing to expansion and disposal – means we can provide a comprehensive understanding of the mining sector and the likely issues and solutions that arise in a wide variety of transactions.
Our aim is to find commercial solutions for investors in complex legal and regulatory regimes. In addition to M&A and financing expertise, this also requires a solid understanding of the tax and regulatory rules across many jurisdictions.
We are ideally placed to help our clients, advising from our own offices in Europe, the U.S., Latin America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia.
