Intelligent and robust commercial agreements, contracts and legal advice underpin well-structured export credit facilities. In this competitive economic climate, having the right commercial agreements (such as contracts and terms and conditions) in place is imperative.
Good commercial agreements protect all parties involved, encourage performance and discourage disputes; if a dispute is inevitable, then it is important for our clients to feel confident that the agreement protects their position.
Our export credit service combines comprehensive knowledge of key sectors and commodities with legal expertise. We provide a full service to our clients across this sector, which includes manufacturers, financiers, traders, transporters and end users.
Lewis & Co covers the whole export credit legal spectrum, from contracts & agreements through to legal advice and paperwork. As a specialised legal partner for structured export finance transactions, we have the capability and expertise to handle all export credit related legal enquiries.
A trusted legal partner in the export credit process is critical; we not only understand how important getting the deal done is to our clients, but we also understand how important it is to get it right.
The lawyers in our Export Credit Team handle contentious and non-contentious assignments. This means that we are able to draw on commercial and litigation expertise when drafting contracts and agreements.
Lewis & Co is conscious of our clients’ need to mitigate the risks of doing business with the returns on their investment. We make sure that we understand the nature of the commercial export issues that face our clients. We further recognise that the needs of each client and the circumstances of each deal are never the same; each agreement we produce is designed to address the specific commercial challenges being faced.
Most importantly, we believe that each contract and agreement must be detailed enough for security and pragmatic enough for workability on a day-to-day business perspective.
Our international client base drives the way in which we deliver our export credit legal services: many operate at the cutting-edge of both business and technology, which requires an ever changing and responsive service. Lewis & Co thrives on the challenges of meeting our clients’ needs.
