Our securitisation team of German and English qualified lawyers is part of Allen & Overy's international securitisation practice, recognised as a global market leader. The group is renowned for being innovative and creating benchmarks in the market and, most importantly, providing clients with commercially viable structures in increasingly regulated international markets.
We advise arrangers, originators and trustees on transactions involving a wide variety of asset classes and structures, including “true sale” and synthetic securitisations, CLOs, CDOs and the establishment of securitisation programmes. Our service is comprehensive and covers all regulatory and tax issues. Our experience includes advising on ground-breaking and innovative commercial mortgage-backed securitisations, whole business and public sector securitisations, as well as securitisations of auto loans, consumer loans and trade receivables. In addition, we have extensive experience of covered bonds and Pfandbriefe.
Our securitisation team works alongside structured finance, derivatives and banking lawyers to ensure clients’ transaction needs are met and complex structures are successfully completed. The team can call on specialists in tax, real estate finance, project finance and corporate trustee.
