Kaye Scholer LLP

Kaye Scholer is widely recognized as a leader in structured finance. Our structured finance practice brings together a team of finance lawyers in our New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, London and Frankfurt offices, with extensive experience, not only in structured products and asset securitization transactions, but also in the related fields of bankruptcy, tax, securities offerings, regulatory matters, real estate and certain specialized industries. The team represents leading global financial institutions, hedge funds, private equity funds, pension funds, insurance companies, and Fortune 500 companies, covering a broad range of areas. These include public and private ABS, RMBS, residential mortgage warehousing, CMBS, operating asset securitization (aircraft and rail), commercial paper conduits, esoteric asset securitization, trade receivables securitization, structured asset funds, distressed asset sales, whole business securitization and derivatives.
Our clients rely on us to handle their most complex and groundbreaking structured finance transactions. For example, the group has been involved in many of the largest and most complicated securitization restructurings, bankruptcies and troubled asset portfolio sales and liquidations, often developing unique solutions that were later broadly adopted broadly in the market. We have represented clients in connection with private sales of large pools of distressed assets and securities, including, most notably, the representation of a major European financial institution in its $44-billion dollar sale of troubled assets under a government-sponsored program.
 Kaye Scholer’s structured finance practice is regularly recognized by key third-party authorities, including Chambers USA, Chambers Global and US News & World Report/Best Lawyers’ list of “Best Law Firms.”
We are well-versed in advising on transactions in the United States, as well as cross-border and international transactions, and we remain committed to continuing the expansion of our practice globally.
