Kalliolaw was one of the first Finnish law firms to specialise in mining and exploration and has been for years recognized as a leading mining law firm in Finland. We tend to be the first contact when foreign mining and exploration companies enter the Finnish markets. We advise foreign and Finnish held mining and exploration companies throughout the whole life span of such companies, including obtaining, transferring, selling and pledging of mining rights, as well as advising in permitting processes, joint ventures, formulation of royalties and net smelter models, environmental matters, mergers and acquisition, financing as well as day-to-day operations with authorities, landowners and municipalities.
Environmental compliance and regulatory matters need to be taken into account in projects that may have effects on the environment. Also, the previous activities on an acquired piece of real estate may trigger liability and reputation issues for the acquirer. Our team advises in all environmental matters, ranging from due diligence reviews to environmental permitting as well as disputes before the courts and other authorities.
Kalliolaw’s mining and environmental teams are highly ranked in e.g. IFLR1000’s researches from year to year. Kalliolaw is also a frequent contributor of Law Business Research Ltd.’s “Getting the Deal Through – Mining” publication. Download the most recent contribution on “GTDT – Mining 2019” here.
