Rohit Bhoothalingam is the General Counsel at London Mining Plc, a UK-based company that develops mines for the steel industry. He joined the company in 2008 having previously been the General Counsel at a London-based natural resources focused hedge fund. Rohit was in the news in 2013 when he took up a £390 million legal battle - worth more than the market capitalisation of London Mining – with joint venture partner Wits Basin Precious Minerals. The £123.3 million AIM-listed company had chased Wits Basin over a $1.2 million loan obligation for a Chinese mine. The two eventually ended their joint venture by mutual agreement and the case was settled. Rohit graduated in law from Cambridge University, obtained a Master of Laws from Georgetown University Law Center and is a member of the New York Bar.
