The market for commodities lawyers is busy and still growing. A continued increase in trade, combined with a small number of lawyers wth the pre-requisite skill-set, has led to a number of high-profile banks and commodities trading companies struggling to find legal talent in the commodities area. CML is working on a number of very interesting mandates for both physical commodities lawyers and commodities derivatives lawyers, primarily in Singapore but also further afield.

A number of very prominent players in the market have recently had to look to Europe and to internal transfers to fill vital gaps in their commodities legal teams so this is an area in which junior lawyers in Asia would do well to gain some expereince.
