About Me

I am a senior associate in the Paris-based Finance Team.

My practice focuses on aviation finance and leasing, where I have an extensive experience in structuring, documenting and negotiating transactions on French and English law, as well as cross-border aspects of the transactions.

I advise primarily airlines, lessors and lenders on their transactions. I assist clients with their complex tax structures such as green financing, JOLCOs, Insurance product financing (Balthazar and Piiq) and title retention agreements as part of SLBs.

Working closely and building lasting relationship with our clients has allowed me to work on new topics and innovative financings/products such as sustainable lending, Balthazar and PIQ-type financings.

My goal is to act as a one-stop shop for our clients in aviation-related, corporate, finance and tax matters.
  • Assisting Air France on the structuring and negotiation of the terms of its first 'green' financing for its twelfth Airbus A350-900 delivery. The financing was an innovative hybrid of debt, the rate of interest of which varies in accordance with environmental milestones set for the airline (a sustainability-linked loan), coupled with a payment default insurance policy (a classic Balthazar). The result is an historic first not just for Air France, but for the industry: this is the first green-linked term loan enhanced with a payment default insurance product.
