Trade and export finance

Eversheds Sutherland understands trade finance. With a dedicated team of over 25 lawyers, we provide advice to banks, financial institutions, traders, brokers, ship owners, insurers, producers and industrial end users on all aspects of the financing of trade in hard and soft commodities.

Many of our lawyers have worked in-house and our involvement in all aspects of the physical and financial supply chain means we are well placed to provide expert guidance on the issues you face.

Our team has already assisted over 20 international and local banks in preparing their trade finance documentation. That means we can benchmark approaches and provide guidance that is commercially smart and attuned to your market as well as being legally correct.

Areas of trade finance we cover

  • export finance
  • hedging and derivatives
  • Islamic finance
  • litigation and international arbitration
  • restructuring
  • structured trade finance
  • asset based lending and receivables finance
