Key members of Trinity’s legal mining team have advised on greenfield mining developments and related equity and debt financing. The team is has also acted on acquisitions and disposal of substantive mining operations. Given the team’s connections and knowledge of the mining industry in emerging markets, notably Africa, Trinity can also advise on the necessary infrastructure to support burgeoning mining operations.

As legal specialists in the mining industry, Trinity has worked hard to act as a bridge to critical relationships between resources and infrastructure.

In 2012, Trinity opened an office in Australia with a view to servicing the growing number of mining companies in Australia undertaking projects in Africa and other emerging mining markets. This has enabled Trinity to develop a close working relationship with one of Australia’s pre-eminent mining firms, cementing our resources team as one of the leading international practices.

Our ability to offer local market knowledge and oversee the full lifecycle of mining projects means Trinity’s proven mining lawyers are well-placed to advise on transactions and disputes on behalf of global financial institutions and organisations, as well as mining houses. The team’s awareness and comprehension of the risks and political hurdles involved in sensitive and emerging jurisdictions has enabled us to advise on some of the mining industry’s biggest and most innovative deals and projects; protecting the best interests of stakeholders.

Some of the transactions advised on by Trinity in the mining sector include:

  • Acting for lenders in the project financing of a nickel mine, named PFI’s “Mining Deal of the Year” – Madagascar
