"Frank Mausen receives excellent praise for his acute understanding of securitisation law: 'If a structure does not work, he thinks with us about ways we can come up with alternatives. He is always up to speed about what works and what doesn't, and his knowledge is very broad'." Chambers Global 2014 (Capital Markets)
