Christine Van Gallebaert's practice focuses on securitization, covered bonds, debt funds, and structured financings that are backed by receivables (notably trade receivables, mortgage loans, receivables over public entities, consumer loans, and nonperforming loans).

Christine has been recognized as an experienced practitioner in securitization deals by leading legal publications. She has assisted clients in the formation of a number of covered bonds issuers for French and multinational banking groups and in securitization transactions of various financial assets. More recently, she has counseled debt funds investing in small and medium enterprise (SME) loans, including through emergent crowd-lending platforms. Christine also set up several French debt funds authorized as a European Long Term Investment Fund (ELTIF) by the French Market Authority for the purpose of granting loans directly to European SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises).

Christine has lectured on securitization as part of the Master 2 banking and financial law program at the University of Paris I-Panthéon Sorbonne since 2009.

She also regularly writes articles for noted financial publications, including Capital Finance and Revue Banque & Droit.
