Trade, Commodities and Export Finance

Driven by volatile commodity prices, the growth of emerging markets and the economic downturn, the international trade, commodities and export markets have become exceptionally dynamic.

Increasingly complex finance documentation and security structures, as well as new and stricter regulation regimes, mean that a range of new legal challenges and risks have arisen.

Our trade, commodities and export finance team can translate complexity and the increased scrutiny of security structures into practical and efficient solutions. Our in-depth knowledge of the sector and track record in documenting trade, commodities and export financings and our litigators' experience of advising on a large number of disputes in the trade, commodities and export sector allow us to identify and solve any issues upfront, providing our clients with both practical and commercial advice.

Whether trading in physical commodities or commodity derivatives, using commodities to generate cash flows within shari’a-compliant financings, entering into a commodities financing or structuring a complex commodities arbitrage transaction, there are a plethora of diverse legal issues to consider – from documentation to credit mitigation and from regulatory approvals to reputational issues. At Allen & Overy, we bring our expertise in each legal discipline under one product umbrella to offer our clients a seamless solution.
