Mining, Minerals and Waste
We’ve been mining a successful team in the quarrying and minerals sector since the earliest days of our firm. In fact, Stephens Scown was founded on the back of the burgeoning China clay industry in Cornwall, and we continue to advise a whole range of businesses involved in mining, minerals and waste.
Independent legal guide Chambers rates our team on a national scale, declaring we are ‘firmly acquainted with the minerals and mining sector’ and notes that we act for leading operators in the field. As you’d expect from Stephens Scown, we’re passionate about living up to that billing.
Thanks to our long-standing track record and close relationships within the industry, we have built up extensive specialist knowledge in mining and quarrying production and processing, in-fill, landfill sites and all the associated planning and environmental issues.
Naturally, we can provide timely and cost-effective advice on all aspects of your business – from company and commercial work, to business acquisitions and sales, employment issues, competition law and contracts. And we’ll be there for your business day after day, building a partnership based on friendliness, trust and openness.
Stephens Scown LLP’s ‘highly recommended’ team advised Aggregate Industries on mineral arrangements, disposals, option agreements and wind farm matters, and Wheal Jane and Brownfield Investments regarding the UK’s first solar park. Robert Camp heads the group.
