Export Finance

We regularly represent U.S. lenders, exporters, and foreign borrowers in the structuring, negotiation, and documentation of export finance transactions involving credit enhancements provided by U.S. and multi-lateral agencies.  Our lawyers have extensive experience with the financial products and credit enhancements offered by the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM Bank), the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and the Private Export Funding Corporation (PEFCO). 

We have counseled clients in hundreds of export finance transactions.  Our engagements in this area have addressed pre-export working capital facilities, short-term revolving buyer credits and loan facilities, medium and long-term loans and credits, receivables financing facilities, bank-to-bank credit guarantee facilities, and structured limited recourse project finance transactions involving large turn-key plant and infrastructure projects abroad.  Our attorneys have assisted clients in every step of the export finance process – from the application, to credit documentation, to assistance with claims.
