Corporate Trust and Agency

Allen & Overy is one of only a few firms with a dedicated team of English, New York and locally qualified lawyers to provide specialist advice to the corporate trustee and agency services community.

Integrated with the rest of our International Capital Markets practice, our Corporate Trust and Agency group is ideally positioned as a key partner to the corporate trustee and agency services community and related counterparties in relation to all aspects of capital markets transactions.

This is enhanced by our ability to provide specialist trustee and agency services advice in many of the key jurisdictions including the UK, Europe (including France, Germany, Luxembourg, Italy and Spain), Asia (including Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney), the Middle East (through our office in Dubai) and Africa (through our offices in Casablanca and Johannesburg).

We can advise on the full range of transactions, including:

  • new issues – including domestic and cross-border MTN programmes, ‘plain vanilla’ standalone corporate bonds, regulatory and hybrid capital issues, equity-linked corporate bonds, covered bonds, securitisations and all other forms of asset backed and structured finance
  • 'after sales' advisory work – including in relation to defaults, restructurings, waivers, modifications and the general exercise of trustee powers and discretions

Due to recent market events, much of our current 'after sales' service is concentrated on downgrades, collateral postings, restructurings, enforcements, defaults, receiverships and related matters – we have extensive experience of the restructuring of debt issues and also accelerating debt issues and enforcing security (including liquidating assets) both at the trustee’s discretion and on direction from its beneficiaries with respect to both English and New York law transactions.
