Advising on deals, projects and disputes for hard asset mining, minerals and aggregates companies.
The mining, minerals and aggregates sector is set to experience a surge in demand internationally, partly driven by economic growth in the developing economies, stabilisation in the recovery of developed regions and the continued expansion of the tech industry. Such increased demand is also set to drive investment in the market generally to particularly address the needs of growing economies.
The sector is not, however, free of challenges – with the advance of technology, it is imperative for mining companies to invest in innovation and to utilise cutting edge processes in order to achieve efficient and sustainable business models. Funders and traditional lenders to the market are also facing greater risks when investing in the sector due to the soaring costs of production that their borrowers face, partly driven by national policies aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of the extractive industries generally.
Members of Addleshaw Goddard's team advise across a whole range of matters in the extractive industries. We have been involved in the construction, development, funding and operation of mines, quarries and their related infrastructure internationally and across the UK.
