With unprecedented volatility in the global financial system, market participants are exposed to extraordinary risk and uncertainty. Risk assessment by both lenders and borrowers has meant more restrictive terms in finance documents while changes in the financial and regulatory landscape have significantly altered ways of doing business.
Our global reach and depth of experience in the world’s key financial centers enable us to advise lenders, export credit agencies, commodity traders, multilateral institutions, equity investors and other corporate borrowers on all aspects of trade and export finance transactions. Our trade finance lawyers have extensive experience advising clients on trade finance transactions throughout the world, including in emerging markets.
We have helped structure and close the most complex domestic and cross-border financial transactions, including pre-export financings, supply chain finance arrangements, borrowing base facilities, bilateral loans and syndicated loans supporting import transactions, participations, letter of credit facilities, repurchase agreements, intercreditor agreements, commodity-based financings and account receivable purchases. We also advise clients on the impact of new regulations and rules on the financial industry and assist them with regulatory and enforcement issues.
