Mining sits at the core of Linklaters LLP 's multi-disciplinary practice which advises the full gamut of clients under the joint leadership of Charles Jacobs , Toby Grimstone and David Avery-Gee . Longstanding client Glencore recently appointed the team to oversee its acquisition of 31% stake in Mutanda and 10.25% in Katanga from Fleurette Properties. Corporate partner James Inglis worked closely with allied firm Allens to handle Rio Tinto's sale of its Australian subsidiary Coal & Allied Industries to Yancoal, and Avery-Gee intervened in Newcrest regarding its subscription for 10% of the issued share capital in AIM-listed SolGold. On the financing side, Fiona Hobbs and head of the Africa group Andrew Jones oversaw the $2.73bn project financing for the construction and refurbishment of a 912km coal railway line through Mozambique and Malawi as well as the Nacala port in Mozambique to service the Vale and Mitsui mine on behalf of a group of investment and commercial banks.
