Over the past two months Fortior was engaged by a commodity trading house based in Lausanne to advise it upon trading contracts whose combined value was estimated to be around US$10 million.
The client’s Managing Director had the following to say about her experience with Fortior: “In a fast-paced environment like commodity trading, it is important to be able to obtain legal advice quickly. In this respect, Fortior has beaten our expectations. We got detailed and thorough advice within just several hours of our request. The advice was clear and to the point, and Mr Kozachenko has been available on the telephone throughout to explain any outstanding issues and assist with negotiations with our suppliers. One of Fortior’s unique features among Swiss law firms is that they are experts in English law, shipping and commodity trading and can advise in Russian and other Easter-European languages. I would highly recommend them for any commodity trading work, but especially that involving Eastern Europe”.
