Burford Insights: What is the future of mining post-pandemic?


As the demand for commodities goes up, and companies are under pressure to transition to a lower-carbon world, mining companies increasingly find themselves having to engage in risky projects in unfamiliar countries. Mining companies and commodities traders will have an opportunity to reevaluate how they pursue litigation and leverage legal assets for strategic business purposes.

Burford's Quentin Pak is a Director with responsibility for leading Burford’s office in Singapore and for expanding Burford’s resources to support clients in Asia. In this video, he explains the future of the mining industry post-pandemic: 

  • The economic and geopolitical challenges facing the mining industry today

  • How mining companies can offload legal cost and risk 

  • How legal finance can play a role in mitigating the risks that mining companies are exposed to
