Everything about me

« La simplicité est la sophistication suprême » Leonardo Da Vinci

Life is a never-ending playground to explore. I like transforming complex things into simple maps and draw ings. I love being of assistance to clients, friends and people in difficulty. I spend a lot of time with my family and friends and I enjoy hiking, reading, playing music, yoga and philosophy.

19 years of experience

I have a strong experience in advising financial institutions, lenders, investors, alternative capital providers, asset-based lenders and private equity funds on debt restructurings, workouts and enforcements of debt and equity positions. I further provide strategic advice in the enforcement process of claims to loan servicers, trustees, sellers of loans and mortgage-backed securities and investors owning or acquiring stressed or distressed assets.

Since 2014, I have been appointed by court order as bankruptcy receiver of Espirito Santo Financial Group S.A. and ESFIL- Espirito Santo Financière S.A. top holding companies of the banking arm of the Portuguese Group Espirito Santo.

I am entrusted with several mandates as judicial or voluntary liquidator of investment funds, capital-risk companies and financing vehicles.
