Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked for an international law firm in Dubai and prior to that for a Magic Circle law firm in London for a number of years. I also spent a significant amount of time on secondments to international investment banks in London. I have extensive experience in debt and equity capital markets, structured finance and structured product transactions, both conventional and Islamic, advising leading financial institutions, corporates and government entities. I also advise on liability management, regulatory capital issuances, projects bonds and restructuring matters. I have experience advising clients across a range of jurisdictions, including the EU, the UK, the Middle East, the CIS, Turkey and Asia.
