WeirFoulds is pleased to welcome Partner Richard Dusome. Richard’s practice is focused on banking and financial services with an emphasis on secured transactions, credit agreements and loan restructurings.

Richard has been extensively involved in several domestic and international, secured and unsecured financings and loan syndication transactions. His key experience is in the drafting and negotiation of financing opinions and complex inter-creditor agreements, subordination agreements and forbearance arrangements.
