Commodities & International Trade
At the heart of our commodities practice is the litigation and arbitration of international sale contract disputes. Our barristers have extensive experience acting for buyers, sellers and other interested parties in commodities disputes in the Courts of England and Wales and in international arbitration, including under the rules of arbitral institutions such as the LCIA or the ICC, and in connection with trade association arbitrations such as GAFTA, FOSFA and the RSA.
Our expertise extends to a broad range of commodities including foods and feeds, grains, oil and petroleum products, biofuels, metals, coal and sugar. We also have experience in paper trading of commodities and associated financial trades, including futures and derivatives and carbon-trading.
We are recommended as a leading set for commodities work in the Legal 500 and Chambers UK.
