The highly regarded mining, projects and energy department at Fortun Narvasa & Salazar provides a comprehensive service, covering project finance, regulatory, corporate and tax. Notwithstanding the downturn in the Philippine mining industry, the firm has continued to advise significant foreign mining companies on their projects in the country. Phil. Gold Processing and Refining Corp. is a key domestic client in this space; the team has recently assisted it on tax and financing matters, and also represented it before the Environmental Management Bureau in a case concerning alleged environmental permit violations. It has also been actively advising clients in the renewable energy sector on recent projects, in addition to having an established base of oil and gas-sector clients. Practice head Roderick Salazar III ‘maintains an eagle eye on the development of the case and is always ready to give his own take on it‘. Senior associate Sheila Sison specialises in dispute resolution and mining, often representing mining companies before regulatory bodies.
