Market leading contentious and non-contentious experience across the commodities supply chain
We support our clients in the constant flow of materials and goods around the world and are with them every step of the way.
Recognised as market leaders in the commodities sector, we are ranked in the top tier of both the Chambers UK and Legal 500 directories.
We have dedicated trade and commodities teams across our office network, including a substantial UK team, working on the full range of the commodity markets – hard and soft commodities, oil and energy, futures and derivatives, and the newer specialisations such as carbon trading. Our end to end supply chain experience gives our advice a particular depth of understanding and this is underpinned by our legal knowledge across our contentious and non-contentious practices.
We act for a wide range of producers, trading companies and banks offering pragmatic advice and steering them through the complex and diverse commercial challenges they face. In addition to standard trading matters, these include hedging, freight trading/freight derivatives and risk management. We also advise on sovereign immunity issues, sanctions, bilateral investment treaties and WTO regulations.
Providing the full complement of services for our clients on all issues relating to the domestic and international movement of goods
We are a market leading transportation and shipping practice acting for global logistics companies, traders and end users in every aspect of their supply chain management.
As one of only a handful of firms with experience of transport and logistics matters across all our practice areas, we advise on all issues relating to the domestic and international movement of goods. Given the ever growing need to support end to end logistics, we are particularly experienced in managing large complex, multi-jurisdictional, multi-modal transport matters.
Our reputation in both road and rail has flourished in recent years, as we handle the full range of work to support our clients in both these sectors. We have also worked on a number of significant infrastructure projects that combine several transportation elements to ensure the raw materials meet their trading hub.
