Our natural resources team know their way around this global sector.
English law is regularly the governing law on international transactions in this sector, and we have acted on numerous acquisitions, disposals and joint ventures.
We act for companies and their advisers with interests in oil & gas, mining, renewable energy and agriculture, including those listed on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market and AIM.
We also have considerable experience advising on public and private financings for issuers and their financial advisers, sponsors, nomads and brokers, with particular experience of those companies listed on the TSX, TSX-V and ASX looking to obtain a dual listing on AIM.
This is a sector where shareholder and joint venture disputes are increasingly common, due in part to the political instability in jurisdictions where the underlying assets are often located. Our dispute resolution and corporate governance specialists are routinely called on to advise on these matters, which they do with the added benefit of industry knowledge. This includes advising on international arbitration to resolve complex disputes.
Our employment and immigration team advises numerous global natural resources companies on their HR issues in what is a very mobile industry.
