Since 1882 – well before most Western states achieved statehood – Parsons Behle & Latimer has focused on the hard rock mining industry. The mining industry is in the firm’s DNA. Over the last 130 years, we have built on that foundation. With the combined experience, knowledge and expertise of our people, we have built one of the strongest mining legal practice groups in the country. We serve our clients from the early stages of exploration, through development and permitting, through project operation through eventual mine closure and reclamation.
We handle land and claim acquisition and leasing; pre-project, acquisition and divestiture due diligence; joint ventures; project financing; tax structuring; project permitting and environmental compliance; purchasing; refining and smelting arrangements; commodity hedging; power supply arrangements; political advisory services; mergers, reorganizations and divestments and all other legal aspects of the exploration, development and mining industry. Our valued clients have trusted us with their projects in the United States, Canada, South and Central America, and elsewhere. Our clients range from the small junior exploration and mining companies, to diversified international mining companies.
Our attorneys take a practical, cost effective approach to our clients’ needs. With our other firm specialists, we also offer multidisciplinary team options where appropriate for complex exploration, development and mining matters, including litigation.
