Hogan Lovells Trade and Export Finance team is regularly highlighted in the legal and financial press as one of the world’s leading practices in its field. The team’s hub is in London and we have experienced lawyers in many of the firm’s other offices, such as Amsterdam, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Moscow, New York and Paris.
We represent both lenders and borrowers, acting for trade finance banks, commodities traders, multilateral institutions, regional and development banks, export credit agencies (ECAs), and governments. We cover all regions of the world via the firm’s international network of more than 40 offices and through the close relationships we have built up with local law firms.
In addition to providing clients with transactional and advisory support, we help clients resolve their contractual disputes via arbitration or court litigation.
