Trade & Finance

Nautica Law have acted on behalf of international banks in respect of disputes arising under letters of credit and other trade finance documents.

The Nautica Law team have hands-on experience of litigating issues concerning the procurement of letters of credit by fraud and the avoidance of these and other trade documents.

In addition, Nautica Law advise on sale and lease-back structures for the purchasing, financing and bareboat chartering of all kinds of merchant vessels including dry bulk carriers, tankers, LNG and Ro-Ro vessels.

In the morning I might be taking a statement from a broker in Singapore about a fraudulent transaction, then in the afternoon discussing complex details of banking arrangements with a US lawyer.

Each conversation is a different relationship with someone elsewhere in the world, but both require accuracy and an individual approach.
