Mayer Brown LLP has more than 100 structured finance lawyers in offices across the Americas, Asia and Europe, advising on all aspects of securitisation and structured finance transactions. The firm carried out the first CLO transaction in 1988, the first partially enhanced multi-seller commercial ... paper conduit in 1989 and the first TSI-certified securitisation in Germany (Driver One) in 2004. It has experience in the conduit, CDO and synthetic markets, and expertise in the areas of securitisation of intellectual property and nonperforming loans, securitisation as an acquisition financing tool, large rescue structures for distressed assets or structured credit products and other hybrids or derivatives. Globally, Mayer Brown advises intensively on auto-related securitisations, helping leasing companies, banks and other auto lessors create like-kind exchange programmes on their own account and co-ordinating such programmes with titling trusts and securitisation structures. Its German securitisation practice advises on all aspects of securitisation and structured finance transactions, including factoring and asset-based lending transactions. We would like to thank Volker Junge and Susan Günther for their contribution to this chapter.
