Commodities in Focus - Edition 9 2020


Welcome to the ninth edition of Commodities in Focus (CIF); our bulletin for clients engaged in the production, trading, carriage, storage and financing of commodities.

This edition is the second of two that looks at themes for the coming decade. With that in mind, we have included two UK-focused articles addressing hydrogen projects and the government’s clean energy plan. You may also be interested to read the news of the firm’s involvement in the creation of The Sea Cargo Charter, an important sustainability initiative with which one of our partners, Haris Zografakis, has been closely involved.

Admittedly, however, our green theme has been somewhat relegated in order to give headline billing to Emma Skakle, our latest partner recruit and co-author of the opening article on the likely impact of the Corporate Governance and Insolvency Act 2020 on the commodities sector.

Emma is a true commodities specialist and brings additional breadth and depth of expertise to what is already a fine team of lawyers. We are very glad to have her on board.
