Steel Maker Enlists Regulatory and Policy Advice to Pursue Mine Expansion


When the largest steel maker in the country and largest taconite producer in Minnesota wanted to expand, the company engaged Larkin Hoffman’s regulatory and government relations team. The Larkin Hoffman team advised the company on numerous complicated and politically sensitive regulatory and public policy issues arising from the proposed expansion of an existing taconite mine in northern Minnesota. In addition, Larkin Hoffman attorneys worked on legislation designed to improve the client’s prospects for a successful project following approval of the necessary state and federal permits.
