Gide Loyrette Nouel A.A.R.P.I. remains one of France’s finest addresses for structured finance transactions and securitisations, both core lines of work of the renowned Xavier de Kergommeaux. Counsel Clément Vandevooghel provides key support in structured finance, including in asset-backed lending, loan portfolio sales, and securitisation. The practice’s expertise in covered bonds, whose regulatory framework the firm helped shape, is another stand-out feature. The derivatives practice rests on the shoulders of Arnaud Duhamel and Laurent Vincent and focuses largely on equity derivatives and financings. With a strong platform in Paris and London, the firm is a very good choice for multijurisdictional matters, with pan-European transactions accounting for the majority of cross-border cases. Gide 255, the firm’s especially created innovation team, assisted the practice with the use of collateral tokens in derivatives structures. Furthermore, the firm has been involved in the creation of a new French law governed ISDA Master Agreement.
