As lawyers we advise on transactional, commercial, financing, regulatory and environmental matters in the following areas:
MT+Co.’s lawyers have experience providing advice relating to the development and operation of wind power, run of river power and other renewable energy projects. We have acted for developers in buying and selling projects; obtaining permits and approvals; securing equity and project financing; negotiating contracts such as electricity purchase agreements with BC Hydro; and negotiating impact benefit agreements and similar agreements with and for First Nations. We have also acted for institutional lenders in conducting project due diligence; assessing environmental and social risk; and preparing credit documentation.
The forest industry has always been, and continues to be, a primary economic driver of the British Columbia economy. MT+Co. works with clients in the forest industry on a range of matters from acquisitions and commercial transactions, to matters relating to forestry tenure, operations such as log and chip purchase and transportation agreements, and First Nations engagement.
We act for companies and First Nations engaged in the responsible development and operation of mining projects in Canada. We have significant commercial expertise in the areas of mineral royalties and streaming agreements. In addition, a core part of our expertise relates to providing advice on social licence and permitting processes for mines.
Our lawyers have acted for project proponents and lenders in connection with numerous infrastructure and transportation projects. We have extensive experience with Canadian P3 transactions and a strong knowledge of the project agreements and lending agreements required for these projects.
Our lawyers have assisted natural resource companies, infrastructure companies and lenders with respect to both debt and equity financings. In addition to project finance, traditional debt financing and credit facilities, we have significant experience with royalty and streaming transactions.
MT+Co.’s M+A team have assisted clients in all types of transactions across industries and at all market levels. However, the natural resource and infrastructure sectors provide the platform for us to bring our full range of expertise to bear, making transactional work in these sectors our bread and butter.
