Allen & Overy wins rare Anglo-Russian mining deal

Allen & Overy (A&O) has won a rare instruction on a mining deal, advising Russian mining giant Mechel on its $1.498m (£750m) bid for London-based Oriel Resources. Mechel turned to A&O in the firm's first major instruction for the company while chrome and nickel producer Oriel, which is listed on AIM, called on Norton Rose and corporate partner Nick Adams. The A&O team was headed by M&A partner Richard Browne with input from associates Emma Barnett and Elvan Hussein, and partners Varun Gupta and Tony Humphrey in Moscow.
