Amelia M. Charamba - Global Finance lawyer - Nixon Peabody LLP

Amelia M. Charamba

Amy Charamba represents financial institutions who provide fiduciary and agency services to the capital markets. She advises clients on all types of financial products, from debt finance to CLO, and other structured finance transactions, start to finish—from origination, amendment, and refinancings to default, dispute resolution, and litigation.

What do you focus on?

I leverage over 25 years of experience representing leading financial institutions, serving as corporate trustees, custodians, and agents, in connection with the origination, administration, and work-out of structured financial products, as well as corporate debt and municipal issuances. Through my broad market experience and knowledge of their business, I help our clients grow their business in an ever-changing and challenging environment, helping them to manage and respond to the needs of their customers and investors while minimizing risk.

My experience includes representing clients in the initial engagement, administration (including dispute resolution), and unwinding of collateralized loan and debt obligations, structured finance (ABS and MBS), and alternative financing vehicles, as well as on corporate debt, loan agency, and custodial arrangement matters.

I offer creative approaches to resolving conflicts and minimizing risk. Most recently, I focused on advising trustees of RMBS securitizations in connection with loan repurchase enforcement actions, litigation, and related investor relationships. I am also assisting clients in planning for the transition from Libor—including focusing on legacy deals and monitoring regulatory and market responses to alternatives.

What do you see on the horizon?

The economic and regulatory climates in which my clients operate continue to be challenging and in flux. The marketplace is extremely competitive. As a trusted advisor, my role is to partner with my clients to help them increase their market share and guide them in meeting ever-changing challenges.
