Trade disputes

Our commercial litigation team has acted extensively in a broad range of trade-oriented disputes.

Among other matters, we advise on disagreements over the domestic and international sale of goods and services; distribution and agency relationships, and joint ventures; problems relating to exports, imports and international carriage of goods; and contract disputes and wrongful interference with goods (including art and antiquities). We are also regularly involved in disputes concerning international negotiable instruments and commercial paper, trade finance, domestic and international trade debt recovery, and trade insolvencies.

Our clients include commercial enterprises with branches, subsidiaries or joint ventures and importers and exporters to manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, distributors and agents.
