For more than 25 years we have regularly acted as counsel in mining, public company and other securities-related disputes.
Our expertise in such matters extends to disputes over option agreements, controversy over the proper interpretation of preliminary agreements or formal joint venture agreements, and disagreements over the terms of mining leases.
We often act for public companies or their shareholders in circumstances ranging from disputes over stock options to claims of misrepresentation or fraud. We also have extensive experience in litigation relating to financial investments that have led to substantial monetary loss, and have acted for both investors and brokers in such matters.
As part of our practice in the securities industry, we are also called upon to act for professionals in disciplinary proceedings before securities regulators.
