Our experience in the sector is wide and includes real estate, planning, environmental, litigation, regulatory, employment, construction and engineering sub-areas. We advise mining companies on complex financing and contractual relationships. We have represented clients in the transfer mining rights and in purchasing significant mining assets. We also have arranged major equipment lease arrangements.
Mining companies also look to Womble Bond Dickinson’s transatlantic litigation practice to resolve disputes. We have defended mines in wrongful death, property damage, personal injury, environmental and health & safety cases, including black lung litigation. Our mining industry dispute resolution capabilities include our Medical and Scientific Solutions team, which provides medical and scientific analysis to defend mass torts litigation.
In addition, we help clients identify and resolve environmental regulatory issues related to mining, including soil, air and water impacts.
In the UK, we act for a wide range of minerals clients including landowners, landlord estates and operators with mineral interests.
