Sullivan is pleased to have been named "Best Trade Finance Law Firm" 2019 by leading trade finance publication Global Trade Review (GTR) at its annual Leaders in Trade awards, held on 2 May 2019 in London.

The Leaders in Trade awards highlight excellence in the trade, commodity, supply chain and export finance and fintech markets.

It truly represents the strength and depth of Sullivan's trade, commodities and export finance team across our offices in London and the U.S.  It is also testament to the London office's more than five years supporting clients and the market more generally and helping them to achieve their goals and to get deals done. We have a focus on developing markets across the globe that continues to be a successful strategy and which we will continue to build on."
