Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP is a global law firm with a long-standing track record of successfully supporting the world’s leading national and multinational corporations, financial institutions and governments on ground-breaking and business-critical mandates. Our 2,800 plus lawyers deliver results worldwide through our own offices and alongside leading local firms. Our commitment, local and multi-national expertise and business know-how means our clients rely on us when it matters most.

Our lawyers advise mining companies, mining champions, mining exploration, and mining services companies across the globe on high-stakes, and often politically-sensitive, mandates.  We advise clients on all issues relating to their legal rights and strategic options – throughout the life cycle of a mine – from undertaking an initial assessment of contractual rights in the pre-contentious phase through to representing clients in strategic negotiations with contractual and State counterparties and, if necessary, representing clients in formal dispute resolution proceedings before international tribunals.
