Energy and Mining

Energy law covers all aspects of renewable and non-renewable energy, from sales to regulation. Lawyers often find themselves dealing with extraction, taxation, distribution, and siting for forms of energy like oil and coal

Mining law is the branch of law relating to the legal requirements affecting minerals and mining. Mining law covers several basic topics, including the ownership of the mineral resource and who can work them. Mining is also affected by various regulations regarding the health and safety of miners, as well as the environmental impact of mining.




Recent power challenges in Malawi, shortage of petroleum products in or around 2012, and the discovery of some parcels of minerals in Malawi have spawned quite some legal literature in Malawi in terms of regulation, export trade, transportation, and foreign exchange.

Our Mr. Ahmed Mussa has vetted, drafted, and advised on several deals in Energy and Mining.

Ahmed is in November 2020 completing his Master of Laws degree in Energy, Mining [Oil and Gas].
