Letters of Credit & Credit Support

Several major banks and other financial institutions regularly look to Moses & Singer in complex matters involving letters of credit, including transactions, form preparation, litigation and DOCDEX proceedings. The firm's clients are issuers of commercial (documentary), direct-pay, and standby letters of credit, and standby bond purchase agreements, as well as commitments to honor or negotiate documents, bank guarantees and committed lines of credit, both to provide credit for commercial transactions and to provide credit support and liquidity for a variety of obligations, including commercial paper, IDBs, IRBs, and other tax exempt variable rate demand obligations, insurance obligations, asset securitizations, judgments, and other structured financings. One of our partners is at the forefront of this area of banking law and was a leader in the most recent revision of the Uniform Commercial Code's letter of credit provisions (UCC Article 5) and the drafting of the International Standby Practices (rules for standby letters of credit), and has also advised as to the drafting or revising of various International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) practice rules. We regularly work with ICC rules such as UCP600, ISP98, URR 725, URDG 758 and URC 522. The credit facilities we structure, negotiate and document range from bilateral to syndicated, from plain vanilla to synthetic and alternative (ALOC) structures. We have also worked on outsourcing and white-label and private-label transactions. Our attorneys regularly write and present on letter of credit-related topics at industry and bar association events and privately for the firm’s clients.
