Market volatility. Increased regulation. Licensing burdens. You need someone who understands the pressures of your market.
As well as price volatility, there is a huge focus on licensing and regulation, including REMIT, MiFID, and EMIR in the EU and Dodd Frank in the U.S. Together with our financial services regulatory team we can help you meet these regulatory challenges on both sides of the Atlantic.
We advise on trading documentation for oil, gas, power, metals, LNG, soft commodities, establishment of trading platforms, credit risk management, and contract performance/dispute resolution. We structure trading transactions and monetization across all energy commodities and advise on physical settlement and derivatives.
