Sam Fowler-Holmes, Partner assisted by Jacqueline Cook, Of Counsel and Senior Knowledge Development Lawyer, presented our January webinar which looked at the second edition to A Practitioner’s Guide to Trade and Commodity Finance (“Guide”) which our Trade and Export Finance has updated and greatly expanded under the editorship of Geoffrey Wynne. The book, published at the end of 2021, marks a significant milestone for the firm marking ten years since the first edition.
