With mining being crucial to the world’s effort to transition to low-carbon, hundreds of new mines are required to help improve lithium, cobalt, nickel and graphite stores. Tight environmental controls and regulations, paired with intense commercial and contractual pressures, mean that disputes arise easily within the industry.

This is where the assistance of a technical expert can be vital in decoding complex disputes. A mining expert witness can help you manoeuvre through complex and challenging disputes, outlining and translating complex issues, as well as advising how to pre-empt problems and conflicts.
