Finance works towards the goal of fostering financial market stability through the promotion of a more sophisticated approach to financial market dispute resolution.

Ms. Pletz is a trusted advisor on capital structure issues; cash pooling; pricing of loans, hybrid instruments, guarantees, captive insurance arrangements; in addition to leasing and loans, and other complex asset valuations.
