Approaching trade finance on an integrated basis as part of a global commodities team, we offer sector specific financing advice to clients throughout the supply chain.
The need for astute finance has never been greater, as the risks that go with international trade activity continue to increase. Sanctions regimes are evolving in a rapidly changing environment and many funders consider emerging markets to carry too much risk for their loan books today.
From credit committee to drawdown, our clients – including some of the world’s leading commodities producers, trading houses, banks, trade finance institutions, commodity funds, financing consortia and export credit agencies – look to us for commercial, risk-aware advice.
Our thorough understanding of the legal relationships between parties enables us to help clients avoid the problems that could potentially lead to a default. We advise on the full range of financing options such as structured trade and commodities finance, general trade and trade finance (including Letters of Credit and other payment mechanisms), export finance, supply chain financing, and receivables financing.
All our lawyers have a high level of awareness of the key commercial issues that pertain to commodity financing today, which combined with our industry knowledge, means that we can handle tough cross-border transactions with ease.
