Natural Resources

The extractive resource sector has never been so competitive - and, at the same time, it's facing calls for greater oversight and transparency. With these pressures come the need to extract reserves efficiently, commercially and sustainably. Projects often have an international dimension, with overseas investors seeking opportunities in new markets.

Whether you're an individual, business or government, the right legal advice can be crucial to meeting your goals. You need trusted lawyers who can handle complexity, manage risk and deal with sensitive political issues.

Gowling WLG has the proven ability to advise on all stages of a project. We combine expertise from across our international offices with leading regional lawyers to give you global perspective and specialised local knowledge.

Our lawyers are proactive in identifying the opportunities and risks brought about by industry change, meaning we can add real value beyond legal advice. Members of our team have worked in-house in the resources industry, offering you connections that can support sustained growth.

With our full-service platform, we can also address any commercial concern you may have, including environmental and planning advice, construction and infrastructure, financing (both debt and equity), and commercial arrangements relating to exploration, extraction, processing, trade, supply and transportation.

Gowling WLG is home to one of the leading natural resources IPO practices in the UK, with a track record in listing natural resource companies on the London Stock Exchange's AIM and Main Markets, as well as dual-listed entities. Our team has particular strength in Africa, Russia and the wider CIS, Asia, Australia, and North and South America.

We believe that long-term relationships with our clients is critical to their success. To get to know us better, please get in touch with any member of our natural resources team.
