The mining sector is complex – it encompasses a variety of legal areas, which demands breadth and depth in terms of legal expertise. But that’s not enough for us. We always strive to combine the law with those insights that our extensive experience in mining has given us. This is our minimum requirement, regardless of whether a case concerns targeted initiatives or a longer-term perspective.

So how can we help you? Do you need support on a specific issue, or perhaps you need strategic advice throughout the duration of a mining project? Our work revolves around everything from land access, licences and environmental issues to construction, financing and procurement. We are ready to help.

Examples of client assignments

Concession, land access and claims

Foyen is helping a mining company with environmental licences for, amongst other things, underground mining. This assignment also involves concessions, land access, waste issues and damage claims – as well as issues surrounding the Minerals Act and Seveso requirements.

Acquisition and exploration permits

In an advisory role to a mining company, we have supported the international acquisition of an operational gold mine in northern Sweden. This assignment also involved us providing advice on a number of exploration permits.

How we take a holistic approach

It is about being able to support all aspects of the business, from land and environmental issues to contracts and assignments. That is why we have put together a specific industry team, with legal experts who together offer a virtually unrivalled combination of experience and legal expertise in mining.
