William Candelaria joins DLA Piper's Finance practice in New York

Wednesday, November 01, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - DLA Piper announced that William Candelaria has joined the firm's Finance practice as a partner in the New York office.

Candelaria has more than 20 years of experience advising on cross-border financings, with particular focus on Latin America. He has advised companies and lenders, including private equity funds and principal investors, on financings and restructurings, debt placements, and mergers and acquisitions.

"We are pleased to welcome Bill to our New York office, where he will be a valuable addition to our financial services and cross- border teams," said Richard Hans, managing partner of DLA Piper's New York office and global co-chair of the Financial Services sector. "His engagement with the broader business community, including serving on the Board of Directors of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, will also benefit our colleagues and clients."

Jeffrey Steiner, global co-chair of DLA Piper's Finance and chair of the firm's US Finance practice, said, "Not only will Bill be instrumental to our continued expansion and development in the Latin American region, but his deep finance background and experience are an ideal fit for our integrated global platform."

Candelaria is the most recent addition to DLA Piper's New York office, which, in recent months, has also welcomed Michael Silva, chair of the firm's Financial Services Regulatory practice, Jeffrey Legault and Jeff Salinger, partners in the Corporate practice, and Nicholas Kourides, senior counsel in the Insurance practice.

Candelaria arrives from Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP. He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1995 and his M.A. and B.A from Stanford University.
