Ricardo  Martinez, Esq.

Rick Martinez represents lenders and borrowers in complex cross-border finance transactions. Clients seek Rick's guidance on cutting-edge matters and engage him in one-of-a kind assignments. 

His practice covers a broad spectrum of contexts, including project finance, acquisition finance, asset based lending, and general working capital facilities, as well as trade, commodity and supply chain finance by means of letters of credit, pre-export credit facilities, and the purchase and sale of trade receivables. Most of these transactions have involved leveraged borrowers and thus have benefited from some form of credit support, whether in the form of a guarantee, letter of credit, derivative, a security interest in pledged property, or additional sponsor or parent company support. 

Rick has significant experience advising on doing business in emerging markets. He has closed transactions involving every major Asian and Latin American country, as well as several African jurisdictions, over the course of his career spanning more than 20 years. He was recently ranked Band 1 for Projects: Agency Financing – USA – Nationwide by Chambers & Partners USA, noting his experience with the financing of energy projects for agency lenders in Asia and South America. 

Rick commenced his career in the New York office of an international law firm, where he handled capital market transactions and acquisition financings for multinational corporations and financial institutions active in Latin America. Furthermore, Rick is a former Senior Vice President and Associate General Counsel of Citibank NA, where he was one of two in-house attorneys responsible for the bank's trade finance products in North and South America. 

In 1992, Rick proudly served as a speechwriter and translator for Costa Rican President and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Oscar Arias.
