We have the specialist expertise to oversee the entire life cycle of a mining project.
The success of any mining project anywhere is founded on thorough and pragmatic legal advice. This is especially true of Serbia, where the sector is booming and the legislation fast-evolving.
Our experienced team of mining lawyers has successfully worked with multinational conglomerates, mid-market enterprises and junior ventures. No matter the size of the client or project, our mission is always the same: to help clients meet their goals while protecting them from risk.
Whether it be carrying out a project or raising capital, we bring a can-do, industry-orientated approach to every proposal and transaction.

We thus became the first known Serbian law firm to produce a legal report included in fund raising documentation lodged with the regulatory authorities in Australia.
