Our political risk & trade credit team is a market leader in this specialised class
Our global political risk & trade credit team advises leading political risk and trade credit insurers on product development, claims, recoveries and international disputes.
We act in cases involving a range of jurisdictions, often in very difficult markets, and including matters of international and local laws as well as insurance issues. We have been instrumental in product development and handle issues arising throughout the lifecycle of risk.
We act for insurers in London, the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, and have partnered with clients on all of the major crises affecting the political risk and trade credit markets over the last 30 years. Some notable examples include advising on claims arising from the Arab Spring in Egypt and Libya, bank collapses in Ukraine and Kazakhstan following the global financial crisis, and the 2010 disturbances in Thailand.
We are experienced in the preferred forums for dispute resolution in this class, particularly the London Court of International Arbitration and the Commercial Court in London, and in arbitrations under the rules of the ICC and UNCITRAL.
