From start-up, day to day operations to divestment or mine closure, DLA Piper's mining team in the UK provides a complete legal service and is a leader in the delivery of astute, industry focused advice to this specialist sector. Our team offers a cross-discipline service to clients, advising on all corporate real estate, construction, litigation, environmental, commercial, health and safety, regulatory and planning issues operators may face.

With an in-depth commercial and practical understanding of the industry, our technical excellence allows us to provide a truly unrivalled service to all of our clients. Strategically located across both traditional and emerging mining centres working closely in conjunction with our international colleagues, we provide minerals operators, banks, institutional investors, product manufacturers and investment funds with leading edge expertise, grounded in a thorough knowledge of local and international market conditions and regulations.

We understand that the economic environment, together with an ever-changing legislative framework, presents real challenges for organisations operating in what is already a heavily regulated industry. With one of the most highly regarded mining and minerals teams in the country, we are able to offer practical and relevant advice to meet both legal and commercial requirements.

We also understand that mining is a global business and transactions and disputes increasingly have an international dimension. As well as providing local and national support, the breadth of our global practice and contact base means that we can support your business needs, wherever in the world you do business.

We continue to provide support to trade bodies in the UK and elsewhere and are associate members of the Mineral Products Association. We also produce Minerals Matters, a bi-annual publication for our client and contacts. Please contact our EMEA sector lead, Petra Billing, if you would like to receive this publication in the future.
