Richard Ledain Santiago, Partner, Corporate, Banking and Finance, Fieldfisher

I specialise in corporate and finance, advising a broad range of asset managers across a variety of strategies and sectors (including hedge funds, private equity, debt, infrastructure and real estate), as well as banking institutions, insurance/reinsurance companies, airlines and multinational corporates.

My corporate practice covers mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, structuring of international transactions, reorganisations, capital markets work and general corporate finance, while my finance practice focuses on general lending, structured and asset finance (with a special focus on aircraft finance), securitization and implementation of security packages.

I regularly participate in conferences and seminars, and deliver tailor-made presentations to my clients. I am also the author of various publications including a reference textbook dealing with the regime of share pledges in Luxembourg (Le gage sur actions), which second edition has been released late 2017.

In my spare time, I particularly enjoy flying as a private pilot, reading and training for my next triathlon.
