Mark T. Nesbitt, a Denver attorney and long-time friend of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, has joined the firm of Fognani & Faught, PLLC. Mr. Nesbitt, who taught Negotiating Natural Resources Law Agreements from 2001 to 2007 as an adjunct professor in the Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENRL) Program, will continue to emphasize domestic and international mining law, BLM and Forest Service Public Land Law, corporate law, and real property law.
Mr. Nesbitt is a frequent speaker for the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, and is one of the most knowledgeable U.S. lawyers when it comes to international mining. Before entering private practice, he worked for Homestake Mining Company, Amoco Minerals Company, Cyprus Minerals Company, and Minatome Corporation, a uranium exploration subsidiary of Total Petroleum.
Don Smith, Director of the ENRL program, said, "Mark Nesbitt has been and continues to be a great friend of DU's environmental and natural resources law efforts. He has been involved in many important efforts including writing a new mining code for a developing African nation and is recognized by the World Bank as qualified to draft such laws. Our students have benefited enormously from Mark's wisdom and advice. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with him as he joins his new firm."
