Allen & Overy has been awarded Best Trade Finance Law Firm at the 2020 Trade Finance Global Awards. Selected by an independent external steering committee, A&O was recognised for being one of the few firms able to credibly advise on the full range of trade finance structures across key jurisdictions.

This has been achieved by investing in its growing global trade and commodities team with dedicated, diverse lawyers in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Singapore and New York, allowing it to service clients seamlessly across borders. 

Niels de Ru, head of the Trade & Commodity Finance Group at A&O said: “Winning Best Trade Finance Law Firm is testament to the trust our clients place in our team to deliver the often highly structured and innovative transactions we advise them on. The truly international nature of our practice and the way we collaborate with our clients and for our clients – across our offices in Europe, the U.S. and the Middle East and across our different practice areas – has been integral to our success. We are very grateful to achieve this recognition.” 

London-based trade and commodity finance partner Catherine Lang-Anderson added: “We are proud to be awarded Best Trade Finance Law Firm at the 2020 Trade Finance Global Awards.  Trade and commodity finance has been a large growth area and focus for us as a firm in recent years. This award demonstrates our commitment in continuing to make this a market leading trade and commodity finance practice. The number and value of deals we do ensures that we appreciate our clients’ challenges and ambitions and that we can give our clients deep and valuable insight into current market trends.”
