Fairfield and Woods attorneys have represented a broad range of mining enterprises—from some of the world's most substantial, multi-national resources development companies to mid- and small-sized mining and exploration concerns. Projects for mining industry clients have involved gold, copper, silver and other precious metals, molybdenum and other base metals, coal, and uranium located in the western United States, Central and South America, Asia and Africa. Working closely with client representatives and a wide range of technical consultants, Fairfield and Woods attorneys have represented clients before regulatory agencies, in public hearings, and in dispute resolution forums, and offer insights and solutions to assist clients in meeting their business, contractual, permitting, environmental compliance, and employment challenges.

Our attorneys regularly teach, write and speak publicly on mineral development issues.
