Sovereigns and International Institutions

​We advise governments, supranationals, multilaterals, central banks, commercial banks, sovereign wealth funds, private equity and hedge fund investors on sovereign debt; debt audits and restructurings; swaps and repos, CDSs, project and other financings with sovereign back-stops; bondholder or trustee litigation; investment treaty arbitrations; policy matters relating to all of these. 

Our key experience includes advising on the EUR206bn debt restructuring of the Hellenic Republic (PSI) and on the structured financings for the European Commission and for Eurozone sovereigns. We currently act for clients in considering specific aspects of proposals for a new Eurozone sovereign debt architecture and are working with the Bank of England on GDP-linked bonds to design market appropriate GDP linked bonds for sovereigns.  ​
