Costanza Russo has joined Faegre Baker Daniels’ corporate team as a partner in London, where she advises international financial institutions, commercial banks, governments, corporations and sponsors with major project financing and refinancing across international borders.
Costanza brings deep experience with Eastern European clients. Her joining closely follows that of real estate partner Petar Orlic, who also has significant experience in Central and Eastern Europe. In addition to her work with transport infrastructure and renewables, general financing, corporate lending and real estate financing, Costanza also has in-depth expertise in derivatives and capital markets, particularly with respect to the Italian market.
“Our clients’ needs are evolving with an ever-expanding and globalized marketplace,” said London office leader Paul Finlan. “Costanza brings a deep understanding of markets in other parts of the world, and we are thrilled to add her to our growing corporate team.”
Prior to joining Faegre Baker Daniels, Costanza was a partner at Winston & Strawn LLP, where she focused her practice on cross-border project and infrastructure finance. She holds a law degree from the University of Cagliari in Italy, a CPE and LPC from The College of Law and an LL.M. in Banking and Finance Law from the London School of Economics.
