Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world’s leading legal advisors to corporations and financial institutions, received a Special Commendation at last night’s Commodity Business Awards held at the Savoy Hotel, London.
The honor, in the Excellence in Commodities: Legal category, is bestowed upon firms that have made notable, innovative achievements over the past year in documenting, structuring, analyzing and negotiating both physical and financial commodity agreements, especially in legislative and regulatory aspects.
Cadwalader’s Energy & Commodities Practice is recognized for its work with domestic and international banks, trade associations, exchanges, commercial companies, brokerage firms, and hedge funds, on the complex transactional, regulatory, and enforcement issues affecting both physical and financial markets. The team’s deep bench of regulatory experience is invaluable to market participants and trade associations facing the new Dodd-Frank regulatory environment, as well as challenges related to entity status, registration, capital and margin requirements, recordkeeping and reporting, position limits, business conduct standards, and related business structuring.
The Cadwalader team counsels clients in a broad range of complex regulatory, compliance, transactional, investigations, and enforcement defense matters involving energy, and related listed and over-the-counter derivatives.
