KSW’s Trade Credit and Credit Default attorneys have a deep understanding of global markets and the uncertainties impacting domestic and foreign transactions, including foreign exchange risks, geopolitical developments, commodity, interest rate and time risks, and regulatory changes. 

With strong backgrounds in international politics, corporate finance and trade, our team can recognize and provide advise on the risks attendant with particular transactions, and help find the best insurance tools and products to address those risks.  Finally, in the event of a triggering event, our team works with insurers to assess coverage, potential liability and recovery rights under the terms and conditions of such policies.
