I worked for and co-advised with leading investment banks such as UBS, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Credit Suisse, Barclays and Banque Populaire. I supplied investment targets to Carlyle, KKR, InvestCorp and Standard Chartered. I facilitated secondary offerings transactions on some prominent unicorns such as Lyft, Flipkart, Spotify, Dropbox, and before its acquisition by Amazon. My experience covers USA, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The original version of my work is in English but I can provide versions in French or Arabic if the client needs them.
