Richard Jadot


Richard Jadot

Richard Jadot has more than 30 years worth of experience in advising actors in the banking and finance markets. In 1984, Richard was an in-house counsel of Banque Indosuez, and was dedicating most of his time to the Eurotunnel project. This has been a revelation of the rule that he has constantly applied during his career: finding legal and contractual solutions in ensuring that the deal is done. This approach was particularly important in Vietnam when he contributed to the setting up and development of the offices of Clifford Chance in Vietnam.

Richard focuses on assets (including aircraft and rolling stock), projects (infrastructure, PPP/PFI and renewable), acquisitions, property finance transactions as well as on factoring. He is a leading advocate in all these fields.

Having been involved in numerous international and domestic transactions, Richard has strong connections in the market, has a well-recognized knowledge, constructive and pragmatic approach, and the ability to deal with comparative law exercises. Acting for lenders or corporate entities, Richard identifies and understands the respective interests of the parties and the risks incurred by them, and designs appropriate contractual solutions. 

A client's quote on Richard was "he always finds a way to get the deal done" in The Legal 500 directory.

Richard won the Client Choice Award 2016 for Banking in France.
