Few firms can match the insight of our securitization team, which brings a depth of understanding to each financing or refinancing we take on.
Securitizations are complicated, multifaceted transactions requiring the coordination of many different legal specialties.
As one of the most active firms in the securitization of tobacco settlement revenue, as well as other municipal securitizations, we’re familiar with the many structures and types of issuers involved in these transactions.
From 1999, when we served as bond counsel in the first tobacco settlement securitizations, to our 2017 involvement in the formation and implementation of a $2.7 billion sales tax securitization program for the Sales Tax Securitization Corporation (Chicago, Illinois), our attorneys have been leaders in the creation of market standards.
With over a dozen attorneys working together to realize the goals of each securitization, we use an integrated approach, preparing statutes and documentation that satisfy the true sale and bankruptcy remote-requirements for these structures, and deliver opinions that the market and rating agencies require. And we face and successfully address all the issues that may arise in the process.
