Leveraging our knowledge of global supply chain interfaces enables us to expertly guide clients through complex projects in familiar and unfamiliar jurisdictions.
Competition for the world’s natural resources is fierce. Companies active in the areas of mining and commodities require risk sensitive advice that is bankable and workable on a day-to-day operational level. With our in depth knowledge of several intersecting industries – energy, transportation, infrastructure – and global team, we are well positioned to advise, especially in the investment hotspots of Africa, Latin America and Asia.
We have the skills to take on the lifecycle of these projects including cross-border and domestic M&A, joint ventures, capital markets, project finance, private equity transactions, restructurings, infrastructure and construction projects, commercial agreements, regulatory, insolvency and dispute resolution.
Our clients come from across the natural resources supply chain – from exploration and production companies, owners, operators, services companies, distribution companies and transporters to local and national governments, traders, banks, export credit agencies, financiers, funds and other investors.
