        Mining & Minerals

        DWF's mining team are dedicated experts that gather together all the expertise required to develop a mining project from start to finish.

        Our mining team advise our clients on all aspects of a project including the first stages of exploration to the development of the project, its financing, and the production and marketing of metals or minerals as well as the sale and purchase of the projects.

        Our corporate team advises issuers from across the world on IPOs, follow-on offerings, public M&A and general corporate governance, securities law compliance and reporting issues. We are one of the leading legal advisers to both issuers and underwriters active in the AIM market, one of the most important sources of capital for mining and natural resources companies globally.

        Our dispute resolution team provides legal services to global commodities and mining companies, charterers, shipowners, and their Insurers and Reinsurers. Our focus is on large scale litigation and arbitration where we routinely act in high profile, international incidents or in connection with breaches of representatives and warranties post M&A transactions.
