Who we are:
Who we are…
To be, and remain relevant, we focus on understanding the mining, natural resources and infrastructure sectors, anticipating challenges that our clients may face, before they arise, and proactively providing practical, implementable solutions.
We understand that, to be relevant, we need to have in-depth knowledge of our clients’ operations at a practical level, the geographical location where the operations are situated, expectations by stakeholders such as communities in and around the operations, the interpretation by the relevant regulators of the applicable laws, and of course, the laws that apply to those operations at national, provincial and local level.
We also understand the need to identify trends, challenges and aspects which will be of relevance to our clients, and to address these proactively. Any clients who have dealt with us over the years will know that we take our commitment to being relevant, seriously.
We have learned over the years that being responsive to client needs is absolutely vital. We are dedicated to the quickest possible turnaround, without compromising on quality of work and the integrity of our advice. We respond promptly to communications from our clients in support of our commitments.
We understand that clients need practical, implementable advice which combines the applicable laws, business requirements, and the reality of doing business in a highly complex environment. The mining, natural resources and infrastructure sectors are dynamic, and we pride ourselves in being able to provide up to date and future-focused practical solutions.
