Thomas V. D’Ambrosio concentrates his practice on structured and complex derivative transactions, including related insolvency and regulatory issues. Thomas helps clients structure, negotiate, and analyze the risk inherent in a wide range of derivative products, including equity, debt, credit, commodity, interest rate, currency, and exotic derivatives. His clients range from Fortune 500 corporations, private companies, investment managers and hedge funds, to financial institutions, pension funds, and high net-worth individuals.
Thomas is particularly active in advising enterprises that employ derivatives to hedge risks, monetize assets, and finance the acquisition of assets on favorable terms—with and without the benefits of leverage—including financing issuer equity and debt repurchase programs. He actively represents clients on Dodd–Frank derivative reform.
Thomas also represents issuers in public and private sales of equity and debt securities. He advises purchasers and sellers in stock sales, asset sales, and merger transactions; counsels investment managers in leveraged hedge fund investments; and advises pension fund managers and wealthy families with respect to their investments in hedge funds.
