David Redford has been quoted in the story “Canadian Lithium Miners Strike Deal as Electric Vehicle Demand Ups Prices and Squeezes Supply,” recently published by Canadian Lawyer.
Writes Aidan Macnab: “As automakers’ electrification plans help make lithium an increasingly hot commodity, Lithium Americas has agreed to purchase Millennial Lithium Corp, expanding the company’s operations in Argentina.”
A “geopolitical backdrop” to the deal is the conversion to electric vehicles, says David: “There’s a real shortage in supply right now, as the demand for electric vehicles has increased.”
Lithium Americas outbid two firms from China, which is currently shoring up lithium supply. David is leading the team acting for Lithium Americas in the transaction, which also includes Jennifer Poirier, Jeffrey Roy, Florence Lau, John Norman, Alexander De Pompa, Michael Osborne, Corinne Grigoriu, and Steven Henderson.
