Derivatives Documentation Limited

Derivatives Documentation Limited ("DDL") is a family business with a wealth of OTC derivatives and repo and securities lending legal documentation expertise.

We were founded in 1996 to fill a shortage of temporary ISDA Master Agreement negotiators for overstretched documentation teams. Back then DDL consultants would typically act as temporary negotiators for 3-6 months based in clients’ offices. Nowadays we usually operate offsite rather than in-house but negotiation is still a core business for us.

The shortage of negotiators highlighted the need for effective ways to train new staff to become negotiators to fill the void in the marketplace. So from 1999 we developed in-house and online training services in the fields of OTC derivatives and repo and securities lending legal documentation, and we now also offer public training courses on these subjects.

Being at the heart of this specialist field has kept us in touch with many highly skilled personnel and over the last 15 years we have used this knowledge to place legal and paralegal staff in temporary and permanent jobs in this field of OTC derivatives and repo and securities lending legal documentation.

Our reputation and specialist knowledge has also led to us undertaking a large number of consultancy assignments in these fields for our clients. Eighteen of the world's top 20 banks have taken one or more of our services over the past 15 years.

We are proud to say that whether you use DDL for our negotiation, recruitment, training or consultancy services you will see that DDL always offer:

  • Complete confidentiality
  • Independence - we are not owned by another group
  • Total flexibility in matching our services to your needs
  • Prompt response to your requirements
