  • Overview

    Our expert lawyers regularly help businesses with a wide range of international interests, from buying or selling a business internationally, to trade and franchises, property and construction projects, and resolving disputes. Whilst the UK has now left the EU, negotiations on the post Brexit relationship with the EU are ongoing, creating  an added element of uncertainty and confusion from clients about what this means for their business interests in Europe. We are well placed to provide our clients with expert guidance to ensure their global interests are protected.

    Dealing with anything in another jurisdiction, whether in Europe or further afield, can come with added complexity. We can advise on a wide variety of business law issues, where the contracts are governed by the laws of England & Wales.  Where a matter involves aspects that are not governed by the laws of England & Wales,  our membership of the Nextlaw Referral Network means we can access lawyers on the ground across the globe.

    Corporate & Commercial 
    We advise clients on legal and regulatory requirements in England and Wales, but do act for international clients providing advice on UK law. Equally we act for UK clients in relation to international cross border aspects of a transaction, such as the acquisition or sale of a business.

    Dispute Resolution 
    The team has expertise in dealing with disputes which are the subject of litigation both in England and Wales and, working with local lawyers, overseas. We regularly act for international businesses in disputes where the only connection to the UK may be an English law and jurisdiction clause. Our expertise extends to advising on and representing our clients in relation to alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, expert determination, or without prejudice negotiations. We regularly advise clients on jurisdiction and choice of law or conflict of law issues.

    We also have extensive arbitration experience and expertise in both ad hoc and institutional arbitrations pursuant to the rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA) and trade bodies such as the Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA), the Federation of Oils, Seeds and Fats Association (FOSFA) and London Metal Exchange (LME). 

    International trade and commodities 
    Our international disputes team acts on behalf of commodity trading clients in relation to sale contracts covering the full range of commodities, including grain and feedstuffs, edible oils, frozen fish, sugar, coffee and metals.

    We have extensive experience handling disputes over the trading and transportation of physical products, including refined petroleum products, crude oil and coal. 

    We have the capability to assist our trading clients on the diverse issues which can arise at any stage from initial contractual negotiations and the financing of a trade, through to issues arising from storage, transportation and delivery. Our expertise extends to warehousing, supply chain and distribution issues and we can advise in relation to trade finance, problems relating to letters of credit, customs and cargo inspections.

    Construction
    Our construction team advise on all aspects of construction projects, providing advice on project documentation, project support and dispute resolution matters. With English law and the English courts a pre-eminent choice in major international construction projects, we work regularly for UK and overseas companies undertaking works overseas, and for international companies or their UK subsidiaries working in the UK.
