    We are specialists in helping businesses successfully enter, operate and expand in the world's markets.

    Vertical integration in the commodities sector continues. While keen to secure supply, companies can view capital investment with caution, leading to a rise in agreements such as joint ventures, strategic alliances and minority stakes. We advise commodities on all of these agreements, as well as on commercial arrangements including supply chain collaboration.

    The drive for vertical integration also leads companies to move into complementary sectors, and push for efficiency by controlling their product's logistics and distribution. We act for many large trading companies across a range of sectors, advising them on the acquisition of assets and expansion into new markets, such as shipping and transportation.

    We are increasingly involved in significant restructuring as businesses look to merge to grow, or shrink to specialise. Our M&A experience is distinctive and focuses on dealing with the key commercial, legal and regulatory risks our clients face.

    We also advise and negotiate contracts for the trading, processing, distribution and marketing of commodities as well as standard terms of business, outsourcing and franchising.
