Professional Experience

Douglas Young is a corporate lawyer with 35 years of experience in cross-border and corporate finance work.

His cross-border focus is in mergers and acquisitions transactions predominantly involving targets based in Europe and in business expansions in Europe, South America, and Asia. His corporate finance focus is in four areas: (1) secured and unsecured credit facilities and debt issuances; (2) venture capital and private equity financings and investments; (3) debt restructurings and corporate recapitalizations; and (4) an area in which he has unique expertise from years of working in a niche practice that he spearheaded at Baker & McKenzie: advising on multinational intergroup financing structures, including in asset restructurings, post-acquisition integrations, cash repatriations, and cash pooling and intergroup liquidity facilities.
