Ron Feldman, Partner, Derivatives and Structured Finance, Fieldfisher

I am a partner in the Financial Markets & Products Group at Fieldfisher with a broad experience in providing legal advice in relation to derivatives and structured finance transactions, prime brokerage and asset custody arrangements, to global financial institutions and hedge funds. I also provide financial services regulatory advice on matters such as the current international derivatives reform.

I acted as a key contact for international financial institutions and clients during the last financial crisis.
