Energy & Resources

As a Western Australian law firm, we recognise the need for an independent firm to provide advice on state matters in the mining and resources sectors, to both local, interstate and overseas parties.

We provide advice in relation to energy and resources projects.  Our experience includes hard rock mining, oil and gas and other resources projects, not only in Australia but in overseas jurisdictions, including Asia, Europe, Canada, USA, South America and Africa. Our lawyers regularly engage with international clients and advisers on cross-border transactions, and we have a list of well regarded affiliates in other countries able to provide expert advice and translation services, if required.

Our energy and resources services include:

  • mergers and acquisitions of mining and resource assets, either direct at the asset level, or at the company level (takeover, scheme or other);
  • due diligence (including appropriate title searches) and all regulatory approvals;
  • pre and post completion matters for an acquisition or divestment;
  • Foreign Investment Review Board notifications and approvals, if required;
  • various agreements including joint venture agreements, sale and purchase agreements, option agreements, different types of royalty agreements, mineral rights agreements, compensation agreements, access agreements and toll treatment agreements;
  • preparation of Solicitor's Reports on tenements; and
  • environmental regulation.
