Uncertainties about demand, volatile prices, intense environmental pressure, and the increasing trend to establish more stringent regulations are just some of the challenges the mining industry faces worldwide. We understand these concerns and have in-depth knowledge of the legal and regulatory environment in this sector to find solutions that help companies to boost their growth.

We have participated in the largest merger and acquisitions and financing of mining projects in Brazil in the last ten years, which puts us in a strong position to advise both mining companies and their partners on structuring integrated projects to implement new investments efficiently. 

We also specialize in advising on the drafting and negotiation of sophisticated financial, commercial, and corporate contracts and arrangements concluded between these companies and stockholders, banks, customers, and suppliers, as well as on restructuring transactions, crisis management, and potential conflicts.

In structuring and modeling greenfield projects, restructuring brownfield operations or implementing M&A transactions, we understand well the concerns of stockholders, buyers and investors, and regulatory restrictions. Such knowledge helps us to seek innovative solutions, regardless of the phase of the project, capable of balancing the interest of the parties involved and mitigating risks to enable new business.
