Dee Afolami

Senior Associate

I am a senior associate in the finance, funds and regulatory department. I advise high net worth family offices, real estate funds, banks and alternative lenders on a range of domestic and international finance matters, including real estate finance (investment and development) and financings in the music and entertainment sectors.

About

I have been with Fladgate for 4 years. Prior to joining Fladgate I spent several years at a leading US law firm.

I enjoy working on international transactions, having completed many deals lending to US and offshore borrowers.

I have recently completed several financings in the student accommodation sector and I have developed an expertise in working on financings in the music and entertainment sectors, which often require a unique and flexible approach to deal structuring and managing the various stakeholders.

I have also recently spent time on secondment with a client who arranges innovative financing solutions for global top-tier music and entertainment clients.
