Legal Analysis

Along with expert advice to governments, parliamentarians and civil society, RWI provides legal analyses of draft oil and mining laws and of fiscal regimes for managing resource wealth. RWI teams have developed economic models of contracts under negotiation, provided comparisons for the formulation of tax policies and consulted on the design of institutional reforms for better oversight.

RWI's staff experts and consultants have advised the governments of Ghana, Iraq, Nigeria and other nations on their laws governing oil and mineral production and revenue management. RWI has helped Mongolia and Sierra Leone secure better terms in contracts for major mining projects and helped Peru's parliament assess the formula for regional sharing of mining revenues.
