Lloyd has a comprehensive and practical legal understanding of general business and mergers and acquisitions and has since added to this knowledge set by advising on the minerals and extractives sector in the downstream segment, involving fuel logistics and retail, as well as in renewable energies and coal mining. He has been retained to work with a lead consultant in lobbying on policy formulation and the regulatory framework to be implemented and consults regularly with diplomats and government officials on commercial matters.

The Mining Law Practice:
Our in-house mining law expertise enables us to provide articulate and specialised advice pertaining to the global focus area of mining and energy. Our track record includes legal advisory for a lead consortium involved in the exploration of upstream oil and gas opportunities in Zimbabwe, advising a global mining house on the acquisition of a strategic platinum asset and advising a natural gas company on the structure of a gas-to-power deal in the SADC region.
Our founding partner Lloyd Manokore, who has extensive experience in the subject matter, was invited to be a key speaker at the 22nd Africa Oil Week held in Cape Town in October 2015. He presented the oil and gas potential of Zimbabwe, the oil generating potential of the Zambezi basin and the opportunities available to potential investors in coal bed methane. He will be sitting on the policy and law panel discussion at Africa’s elite event for energy investment, Africa Oil & Power, to be held in Cape Town in 2016.
Our dedicated Mining & Energy practice group ensures that it is always kept abreast of the latest trends in mining and energy as well as all regulatory and legal aspects.
