LCS & Partners counts more than 60 lawyers among its structured finance team, and maintains a dominant market share of over 90% of Taiwan's securitisation sector. It has represented arrangers, originators, trustees and investors in various asset securitisation cases such as asset-backed commercial ... paper (with account receivables, structured bonds and CDOs as underlying assets), real estate asset trusts and real estate investment trusts. Its expertise covers all aspects of securitisation, including issuing legal opinions and communicating with the relevant authorities. In the past year, LCS & Partners acted as lead counsel to two different REITs in applications for approval and securitisation with the competent authorities. One of these was the first new REIT to be established in Taiwan (with a pool of TWD3 billion) since the financial crisis of 2007-2008, and the other was the first Taiwanese REIT to make investments both domestically and abroad, which has raised over TWD10 billion.
