Kristin Franceschi practices corporate, securities and public finance law at DLA Piper. She represents clients and helps colleagues on structured financings, conduit deals, tax increment financings, defeasance transactions, arbitrage issues, and general municipal law.
Her path to her career in law has been an interesting one. She was born in Los Angeles where her father, Orest Ranum, now one the country’s best-known experts on 17th-century France, taught French history at the University of Southern California. She moved to New York City in 1961 as a toddler when her father became an associate professor of history at Columbia University.
