MIAMI (February 24, 2016) – Veteran attorney Nanette Aguirre of Greenberg Traurig, who focuses her practice on derivatives and structured financial products as shareholder of the Corporate & Securities group, has joined the board of the Florida Alternative Investment Association, announced Michael Corcelli, chairman and founder of the Miami-based organization.

“Nanette brings years of experience in negotiating all forms of international derivatives, trading and prime brokerage deals with global institutions,” said Corcelli, who is chief investment officer of Alexander Alternative Capital of Miami. “She is a frequent adviser on regulatory issues affecting the market, including cross-border regulations and Dodd-Frank.”

Prior to joining Greenberg Traurig’s office in New York as a shareholder, Aguirre worked for a major New York law firm in its structured products and derivatives department. She worked closely with some of the industry’s largest hedge funds, mutual fund and pension plans.

Over the years, she has structured and negotiated finance and derivative transactions, including Indian and Chinese swaps, and credit and fund-linked derivatives, loan, credit default and equity swaps.

She works throughout Latin America, including Mexico and Colombia, where she advised banks, endowments, clearing organizations and other financial institutions.
Admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey, Aguirre earned her J.D. from Rutgers Law School and her B.A. from New York University Stern School of Business.

Prior to entering the legal field, she developed expertise in derivatives with Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Bros.

Aguirre is scheduled to attend the 22nd Annual Alpha Hedge East Conference, February 29 to March 1, at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. The conference is co-sponsored by the Florida Alternative Investment Association and the New York-based conference organizer IMN.
