  Paul Cluley



Paul specialises in derivatives and structured products and has worked as a partner in Allen & Overy's Tokyo, Hong Kong and London offices. He has extensive equity and credit derivatives experience as well as structured finance experience including repackaging programmes, CDOs, CLOs and retail offerings of structured finance instruments. More recently he has developed an active practice in contentious derivatives, specialising in the settlement of disputes arising from all areas of derivatives practice-valuation, close-out and collateral disputes and allegations of invalidity and market-manipulation - including those arising from the termination of derivatives transactions following the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the Icelandic banks.  He is a regular speaker at ISDA conferences on general derivatives matters, close-outs, equity and credit derivatives and collateral.  Paul also advises regularly on structured repo and securities lending matters in the context of large scale funding and equity transactions.
