Stikeman Elliott’s mining lawyers recognized as leaders in their field

March 3, 2020
Stikeman Elliott is proud to announce that the firm has 27 recognized lawyers in the Lexpert Special Edition: Mining 2020. Stikeman Elliott’s Mining Group is highly active around the globe, with lawyers providing integrated legal services and expert counsel to junior, intermediate and global mining companies.

This special edition highlights Canada’s top-performing Lexpert-ranked mining lawyers who represent clients from various companies in the sector. Jay Kellerman, Co-Head of the Mining Group, contributed his insights to this issue through an article on protecting investments in uncertain environments. “There’s more activity on an asset level than I can recall in prior years,” said Jay. “That is not a surprise but a function of corporate M&A activity in the sector.”

Partner Erik Richer La Flèche was also featured in an article about financing in the mining industry. “There’s a lot of money chasing a relatively small number of opportunities,” said Erik. “It’s not the whole industry that is doing well; it’s parts of the industry. It’s not the whole world that is doing well; it’s geographically different depending on what you’re looking for.”

While most often associated with mergers and acquisitions and capital markets transactions, the Mining Group has been at the vanguard of stream finance and royalty transactions, project finance, joint ventures, as well as insolvency, bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings in the sector. Our team delivers creative legal solutions throughout the ups and downs of a cycle and enables clients to capitalize on opportunities and maximize shareholder value.
