Arnauld Achard is a capital markets lawyer with specific expertise in debt capital market transactions, derivative products, asset management, credit transactions, and sovereign debts.

He has acquired over 20 years' experience, principally in Paris, in capital markets. He advises French banks, corporates and public institutions and international banks in the areas of structured finance, derivatives, funds and regulatory issues and capital markets. Arnauld's expertise will permit Fasken Martineau's Paris office to diversify its platform by offering high quality and specialized capital markets services.

Lubomir Roglev is a corporate lawyer with a practice dedicated to infrastructure, PPPs, M&A (non-listed companies), investments transactions, private equity, and energy projects. In his practice, he has focused on developing a high degree of legal expertise and experience in advising corporate clients (companies, infrastructure or energy investment funds), banks and governments. His expertise will also be most useful in connection with clients and projects the firm has in the Middle-East. Lubomir is also active on the Eastern Europe market. 

"Arnauld and Lubomir are both strong and seasoned lawyers. Their business sense, legal knowledge and books of business represent a huge asset for our firm. And their presence in our Paris office will most definitely benefit their colleagues and all our clients, in Europe and abroad. We are pleased they have decided to join our ranks," said Serge Gravel, Fasken Martineau's Managing Partner in Paris.
