As environmental law is still an emerging discipline in South Africa, our lawyers readily share their expertise by convening seminars and workshops on environmental law, the legal implications for the mining industry and the effects of environmental law on consumer rights.
Our mining and environmental lawyers understand the risks and political intricacies inherent in carrying out mining operations in South Africa, particularly in difficult jurisdictions. The environmental impact of mining is a sensitive topic that organization’s often need assistance with.
Legal adherence is paramount in this landscape as well as maintaining a professional relationship with non-governmental environmental organizations. Our key areas of strength include international arbitration, regulations and investigations, business ethics and anti-corruption, and transnational litigation, all of which can significantly affect industry stakeholders.
