Top Canadian firm: Mining - Latin America
"This firm is known internationally for its muscular global mining group, and its extensive engagement with the mining industry frequently brings the firm into contact with Latin America. Recent activity has seen the group engaged in a string of financings for mining operations across the Americas, the acquisition and sale of strategic mining assets and the negotiation of exploration agreements in Argentina. Further afield, it has also been engaged by Brazilian giant Vale to finance and develop projects in Africa."
