Our client, an excellent private equity house with a physical trading arm specialising in commodities within the emerging markets, has grown tremendously. Their continued success has given rise to the need to hire a lawyer with experience in commodities and shipping matters to join their collegiate team and take responsibility for the trading arm.

Day to day work will be broad and likely include (but not be limited to) drafting commodities sale and purchase agreements, litigation regarding those contracts, insurance, and some trade/ship finance. Because of the breadth of the role, litigation experience is certainly valuable however the ability to draft contracts and thus being comfortable with Incoterms that such contacts are based on is also deemed valuable. 

This a great opportunity for a commercially minded lawyer who very much enjoys commodities and shipping to join a company with a healthy respect for the legal and compliance function.
