Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Trade finance is an area of considerable focus for Deacons, and our structured trade finance specialists have gained experience in a wide range of complex deals.
Hong Kong is a hub for trade finance and Deacons, as Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm, has had plenty of opportunity to develop world-class experience in trade financing transactions of all kinds.
Our strong position in this area has been widely recognised, including with the award of Trade Finance Law Firm of the Year from Trade Finance Magazine. Independent guides like Legal 500 Asia Pacific and IFLR1000 also rank Deacons highly for finance, and mention our trade finance experience. However, it is the positive feedback we receive from our clients which is most important – as IFLR1000 notes, Deacons “gathers good feedback from its client base, with one of them praising ‘their depth of local touch and network within Hong Kong’.”
Deacons’ trade finance lawyers advise on all elements of structured trade finance, from straightforward commodities-based financing, and transactions involving export credits, to highly-structured receivables-backed deals. We also prepare standard form trade finance documents for banks and other clients.
If you would like to discuss how we could help your company with its trade finance needs, we would be delighted to hear from you.
