She also regularly advises on their cross-border debt raisings.
Renee understands the needs and expectations of inhouse counsel, having spent two years as inhouse corporate counsel with GE Capital.

She now regularly advises corporate and financial institution clients about how the reform impacts their business, and designing processes to address the changes.
