Greenberg Traurig’s Global Mining Group brings together more than 80 attorneys representing mining companies in operations across the full mining lifecycle. Our global team and platform serve both small junior mining companies and large multinational mining companies in connection with financing, exploration, permitting, development, operation, and reclamation of hard rock, coal, and construction materials mines. We represent institutional investors, private equity investors, venture capital funds, mining companies and others acquiring or investing in mining companies and projects. We also have experience representing mining companies in litigating or developing strategies to mitigate legacy environmental risks, in developing government affairs strategies to address complex legislative and regulatory challenges, and in navigating complex cross-border tax issues in transactions and financings.
