Westcott joins Reed Smith’s Financial Industry Group in Paris

Reed Smith has appointed Victoria Westcott as project, asset and export finance partner in its Financial Industry Group (FIG) in Paris.

Victoria joins the firm from White & Case, where she was a partner in the project finance team for more than ten years and the head of asset finance practice in Paris. She will be joined shortly by a team of three attorneys: Florent Rigaud (counsel), Elaine Porter (senior associate) and Abdullahi Mohammed (mid-level associate).

These additions bring the firm’s finance practice in Paris to a total of two partners, one counsel and four associates.

Victoria’s cross-border practice, in which she acts for clients in jurisdictions across West Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, touches on several key areas of focus for Reed Smith. Her asset finance work covers aircraft, shipping finance, equipment and other large assets, and involves leasing transactions, financing and tax driven structures, secured and unsecured syndicated lending and export credit financing.
