I am a partner of the finance practice in the London office. I have over 25 years of experience in the profession. My background is of a transactional banking finance lawyer with a particular focus on asset-based lending (ABL). Over the years I have worked on many acquisition finance deals for banks, sponsors and management in relation to the acquisition of private and public companies. My career has also covered project financings, trade finance and the development of insurance-related banking products as well as numerous restructurings and refinancings. I helped to pioneer ABL when it was first introduced to mainstream European transactions in the mid-1990’s.
My areas of expertise include complex cross border transactions involving the US and Europe and structured ABL deals using securitization techniques.
