    Hard Commodities

    goes beyond advising on the law
    Legal 500 UK 2014

    With extensive experience and knowledge of the metals and extractives sector, the team advises clients across the supply chain, from extraction through to production and end user.

    Hard commodities in particular are affected by factors such as geopolitical risk, and the accessibility and scarcity of resources. Increasingly, these trends have seen businesses meeting protectionism and resource nationalism in mineral rich nations. The team have strong contentious and transactional experience across areas including commodities regulation, production contracts, and company restructuring.

    We are experienced in advising clients in the steel sector, particularly on their midstream and downstream activities, the raw materials used in the production of steel, and trading. We also advise clients in the iron and coal industries.

    Our services range from the transactional (acquisition of mining interests, sale and purchase of, for example, steel products and raw materials), to the structured pre-export financing regarding the supply of products on a cross-border basis, and the production, stockholding and distribution agreements and delivery to end users.

    We also advise on LME trading, regulatory issues, market abuse, financing and have deep experience of resolving disputes in this sector.
