Five Holland & Hart Attorneys Named Among Who's Who Legal for Mining Law 2016

Five Holland & Hart LLP attorneys have been named among Who’s Who Legal: Mining 2016. Steven Barringer, Robert Bassett, John Davis III, Jack Palma II, and Lawrence Wolfe were selected for the prestigious international listing, which identifies leading lawyers in the field of mining law. 

In addition, Bassett was named among the 20 “Most Highly Regarded Individuals” globally, cited as “garnering widespread praise from across the global market,” and as ‘the doyen of mining law in the US.” Holland & Hart overall was praised for its “highly prominent position in the US market, offering market-leading advice on the full spectrum of mining operations,” Barringer was described as the “go-to guy” for regulatory, risk-avoidance and clean-up requirement advice, and Davis lauded for providing “comprehensive legal counsel in transactional and compliance matters on federal, tribal, private, and state lands.”

This year, 407 practitioners from 248 law firms across 61 jurisdictions were recognized in Who’s Who Legal: Mining 2016. The publication enables  companies to cross-reference the reputations of lawyers among peers and clients with their expertise in the mining industry. Who’s Who Legal collects the data by canvassing and analyzing the opinions of clients and mining lawyers from around the world to identify leaders in the field, and it is impossible to buy entry into its publications. 

“This is a small, elite group selected mostly from international law firms,” said Kelly Johnson, Holland & Hart’s Environment, Energy & Natural Resources practice leader. “This honor is certainly well-deserved and a great compliment to our talented mining lawyers at Holland & Hart who continue to deliver exceptional client service.”
