The team'sstructured finance group is unique in combining the securitisation, derivatives and structured products businesses in a single team and provides the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the very best finance lawyers in the City. The securitisation practice has a leading reputation for whole business/structured corporate debt transactions and conduit financings. In addition it services a number of clients in the "flow" securitisation business, including RMBS.The structured products and derivatives business has a strong reputation in equity and credit derivatives (including CLOs) as well as the nascent longevity and structured insurance area, with a growing emphasis on structured commodity transactions. The team acts for a variety of banks/insurers/financial institutions, corporates, funds and government entities. It works closely with the regulatory team.
You will be expected to work on a wide variety of transactions in the different product lines within the group so as to develop a broad legal knowledge on which to draw as their careers progress. As they become more senior, associates generally specialise in one or more product areas. However we encourage them to maintain a broad understanding of the structured finance markets and products so that they have the versatility to respond and adapt quickly as market conditions change (as demonstrated by the ability of associates in the team to work alongside the restructuring team during the turmoil of the last three years) and the ability to recognise that legal skills and knowledge gained in one area can be readily applied in others.
The firm's international network provides associates with the opportunity to work on high-profile cross border transactions with our offices outside London.
