Hogan Lovells Enhances Banking and Finance Practices With Key New York Hire

New York, 15 August 2017 – Global law firm Hogan Lovells announced today that Ricardo S. Martinez will join the firm’s Global Finance group in the New York office, working in the firm’s Banking practice.

“Rick is an excellent addition to our practice,” said Sharon Lewis, Global Head of Hogan Lovells’ Finance Practice. “His capabilities are a good fit for the needs of our office and our firm’s banking clients in New York and around the world.”

For over 18 years Martinez has represented lenders and borrowers in international finance transactions, including representing lenders and borrowers in complex cross border finance transactions across a broad spectrum of contexts, such as acquisition finance, general working capital facilities, the financing of major infrastructure and energy projects as well as trade finance by means of letters of credit, pre-export credit facilities, supply chain finance and the purchase and sale of trade receivables. Martinez also has significant experience advising on cross-border transactions in international markets such as Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia, where over the last year alone he has closed transactions with an aggregate value of more than US$3 billion.

“Rick is a great fit for our finance team, which often collaborates with attorneys in our Latin America offices on many significant cross-border matters,” said Oliver Armas, New York Office Managing Partner. “Deepening the bench of the New York finance practice has been a strategic priority of ours, and we are continuing to actively recruit in this area.”

Martinez joins the firm from Haynes and Boone LLP, where he was a partner in the finance practice and co-leader of the firm’s Trade and Export Finance practice.  Martinez is the incoming chair of the New York Bar Association's Committee on Project Finance.  He earned his J.D. from Columbia University Law School and his A.B., magna cum laude, from Harvard University.
