Italy Partner Furio Samela has written a feature piece on Italy's shipping finance market for online Italian magazine Shipping Italy as part of the publication's overview of the industry over past year.
Drawing on decades of experience in advising export credit agencies, we add real value to complex and innovative financing arrangements.
Through our global network we deliver efficient, commercially balanced advice to export credit agencies (ECAs) themselves and to lenders on ECA-backed transactions. We regularly work as special advisers to ECAs on large, complex or innovative financings of assets and projects in our key sectors of Energy and Transport.
We understand the needs of all parties involved in ECA-related transactions, including financiers, borrowers, lessors, developers and other investors. With offices in key jurisdictions around the world, we have global reach and extensive cross-border expertise.
Across our core sectors of Energy and Transport, we have worked with all ECAs active in these industries and are one of only four law firms appointed to the European ECA panel for Airbus aircraft financings.
