What sets us apart is our understanding of the patchwork of laws that regulate sovereign financing, principally characterised by the use of ‘soft law’ with the resultant complexity in the legal, regulatory and policy landscape that is often clouded by social, economic and political interests on one hand and international relations on the other hand.

We have built up considerable institutional and mobilization knowledge on international and multilateral financial institutions, bilateral creditors and private foundations financing all of which have different legal and policy implications for the borrowers. As our team understands the rationale, purpose and background of sovereign financing and the impact it has on national finance, sovereign credit ratings, financial and economic stability and environmental sustainability, we are a first choice for sovereign financing advisory and documentation.

We offer the following services: -
— Multilateral and bilateral financing.

On a regular day, you may wear jeans made in Turkey, drive a car manufactured in Japan and communicate with your loved ones using a mobile phone designed in the United States, but manufactured in China. For avid readers, this brings to mind Pietra Rivoli’s compelling book, ‘The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy: An Economist Examines the Markets, Power, and Politics of World Trade.’ For us, while the book came to mind, more importantly are governments’ increasingly negotiating multilateral, regional or bilateral trade agreements, amending national laws and regulations and the inevitable upshot of a myriad of rules, procedures and exceptions that often leaves the global business environment difficult to navigate.

Our international trade team is well-versed with the regulatory complexities involved in the global trade of goods and services and they have adopted an inter-disciplinary approach by combining quantitative, legal and policy proficiency to meet the dynamic global needs of clients. With this, they are able to assist clients manage legal risks associated in the robust regulation of international trade in goods and services.

Data has evolved to become the lifeline of the global information economy. Resultantly, the commercial value of data has increased exponentially in the past decade. Concomitantly, there has been an increase is data breaches and cybercrime. The demand for data protection, privacy and security legal counsel has therefore grown along with the complexity of the global regulatory scene.
