We are also leading advisers to major quarrying companies extracting aggregates and sands across Australia and providing concrete, bitumen and many other products for the construction industry.

We advise on all upstream and downstream issues, with particular strength in corporate, commercial, project finance, environment and native title issues, as well as defending clients in dispute resolution and litigation proceedings.

Our experience includes advising in relation to exploration, development and production agreements, asset and project acquisitions, farm-in and joint venture agreements, shipping and other services agreements, capital raisings and regulatory compliance, including royalty issues, project finance, taxation and other financing arrangements. We also have considerable experience in metals marketing and short and long term sales agreements.
