    Oil & Gas Trading

    an excellent practice
    Legal 500 2016

    We thrive on helping our clients meet the complex challenges facing the energy sector.

    Oil, one of the world's most traded commodities, presents many challenges, not least the close association between the oil price and the politics of some of the world’s most volatile regions. This instability continues to contribute to the high level of market speculation in relation to pricing and future availability.

    We have many years of experience working with government owned producers, leading oil traders and energy multinationals, giving us critical insight into how to put together deals, assess risks and advise on trading issues and the financing, transport and supply of oil and gas. We advise on trading and operational disputes (quality and quantity, contamination, shortage), letter of credit disputes and contracts for physical sale and purchase.

    Our derivatives practice has grown out of our traditional strengths in the international trading market. Management of commodity price, freight, currency exchange and interest risks have become an everyday part of this sophisticated market. We also advise on a wide range of derivatives products.
