With unprecedented volatility in global markets and major shifts in financial regulations, clients face increased risk and greater uncertainty. Our long experience in the world’s key financial centres enable us to advise lenders, export credit agencies, commodity traders, multilateral institutions, equity investors and other corporate borrowers on weathering shocks and successfully pursuing trade finance transactions throughout the world, particularly in emerging markets.

We structure and close the most complex financial transactions, including ECA-covered export financings, commodity-based financings, borrowing base facilities, pre-export financings, discounting and forfaiting facilities, bilateral loans and syndicated loans supporting imports and exports, letter of credit facilities, supply chain finance arrangements and receivable discounting arrangements. We also advise clients on the impact of new rules and regulations on the financial industry, including enforcement issues.

We were named "Best Global Trade/Export Finance Law Firm", "Best Global Commodities Finance Law Firm" and "Best Trade Finance Law Firm in Latin America" at the Trade Finance Awards 2016. We were also named "Best Export Finance Law Firm" at the TXF Trade and Export Finance Awards 2016.
