What do you focus on?

I assist clients as they navigate through new and complex deal structures, updating existing documents to reflect the changing environment for the new deals as well as with amendments to and issues arising from existing transactions. I work on various transactions, including public and private debt and pass-through offerings of asset backed securities, residential and commercial mortgage backed securities, CDO/CLO transactions, corporate debt issuances and collateral agency appointments. I also focus on a variety of custodial arrangements, including warehouse facilities, bi-party and tri-party custodial agreements, securitization transactions and bailee relationships.

What do you see on the horizon?

We have been following developing trends in corporate trust, as well as reviewing current litigation and proposed federal regulations in order to help best protect our clients in the changing environment and to comply with new final regulations.
