With the price of gold and other commodities rising during the pandemic, businesses in the mining and natural resource sector have been looking at new opportunities.
With every transaction or potential partnership, competition and antitrust issues invariably arise. As rules and regulations are complicated and frequently changing in this industry, it can be difficult to navigate all of the requirements without having the right legal advisors involved in your deal from the outset. Often there are country-specific competition laws that mining companies must also deal with when involved in a merger or acquisition.
Our team has substantial experience working on mining-related competition and antitrust cases, so we understand the many nuances and complexities that must be addressed to successfully complete a deal. Over the years, we’ve argued many cases in front of Canada’s Competition Bureau and we’ve helped Canadian, U.S. and international mining clients deal with a variety of high-profile matters. Our experience allows us to rapidly and effectively navigate complex regulatory environments and handle all types of competition matters.
