Fasken Martineau has earned this year’s Global Mining Law Firm of the Year Award by law firm researcher Who’s Who Legal. The honour represents the seventh time the firm has gotten the distinction in the area of mining.
“As an international law firm, this win showcases the outstanding work that our mining group members undertake for clients globally. We share this award with our mining clients who continue to call upon us for a broad spectrum of work from regulatory and financing to environmental and government relations,” said partner John Turner, practice group leader for Fasken’s global mining group.
“The mining arena is one of the most competitive in the world, and one of the most complex from a legal perspective. Being ranked amongst our international law firm peers as leader of the pack is a testament to our group’s strength as a whole,” Fasken partner and global mining group member Michael Bourassa said.
“Despite dropping commodity prices and reduced global exploration and investment capital, the international mining industry is resilient and always evolving,” Turner added.
Fasken Martineau has more than 770 lawyers and offices located in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, London, Paris and Johannesburg.
