ISDA advisory and negotiation

Maximizing impact with minimal cost

Overcoming barriers and inefficiency

ISDA agreements are complex, and most businesses don’t negotiate them enough to become experts. If you have negotiated an ISDA, you know that it can be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. It also involves facing a dealer bank that has a specialized legal team, so it’s important to have expert representation behind you as well. Your partner should know fair market terms and understand the mechanics and logistics of your hedging program. These mechanics dictate which terms will be most important to you and will have the greatest impact on your hedging program and the broader financial concerns of your organization.
