Forestry & Natural Resources
Forest and other natural resources increase in importance as the world moves towards a zero-carbon economy. Minerals and metals are needed for the battery industry, for renewable energy installations and for updating our infrastructure. Wood is at the core of many innovative techniques and products that open up opportunities for sustainable consumption, and forests are also essential as carbon sinks. The key is to create more value from less resources. Companies need to innovate and streamline to meet intensifying competition. This will lead to cooperation and mergers at every level of the value chain.
Naturally, the legal services used by forest and natural resources companies also have to keep up. Strategic mergers and the protection, commercialisation and defence of intellectual property rights are taking centre stage alongside environmental and other regulatory issues. We can provide you with leading experts from every field of law.
