Mining & Minerals

Charting the next generation of mining.

Our law firm's clients are leading the metals and coal mining industries into the future. Even as U.S. demand for coal decreases and electricity generation shifts to other sources, demand remains robust for coal in export markets and for metals domestically and globally.

Whether advising on environmental compliance and permitting, OSHA and MSHA issues, strategic transactions or mine development on public lands, our mining law and mineral rights attorneys are a valued resource to clients in the surface and underground mining industry.

Visit our Safety Law Matters blog to stay current with legal context on OSHA and MSHA law.
