We are experienced in providing the quick, commercially focused advice vital to the success of trading transactions in these sometimes volatile markets.
With years of experience in a wide range of soft commodities including grains, sugar, rice, nuts, soya, coffee, oils and seeds, we have one of the largest international soft commodity legal groups, including advising on issues concerning fertilisers.
Our clients comprise not only some of the world's major commodities trading houses, but also their financiers and insurers.
From production through to sales and distribution, we guide our clients through the contractual and financial complexities of the market, from structuring existing and new investments, to setting up supply and production agreements, to shipment and supply chain management.
We have significant experience in resolving soft commodity disputes including a large number of substantial arbitrations through the main arbitral centres and the trade association arbitration rules, such as GAFTA, FOSFA, IGPA and the Refined Sugar Association.
