Herbert Smith Freehills

HerbertSmithFreehillConditions in the mining sector are challenging. While we can debate structural change versus ‘standard’ cyclical movements in commodity markets, there is no doubt that our clients are looking for fresh ideas and different approaches to one of the most ancient of human industries: mining.

And Herbert Smith Freehills can deliver.

We work with clients of all sizes, in many geographical regions and at every stage of mine life – we get to see a lot. We are keen to share our insights with you: to help you to make connections you may not have seen, or to identify a new opportunity within your business.

Our dedicated global mining team covers every aspect of the industry and every stage of the project life cycle. We can advise you on any aspect of mining: from exploration and approvals 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. We are experts in joint venture and corporate governance. We will help to guide you through equity and debt capital markets and restructuring steps. We are also there to help you avoid, and resolve, disputes.

We focus on getting to know our clients and their projects, to truly understand their objectives. You can be confident that we understand the industry. We know that with the scale and timeframes of investment in the mining industry, you need us to be looking ahead, helping you to plan for future developments in the regulatory and business environment before they arise.
