Milbank is a leader in creating and applying innovative techniques to meet the growing and diverse capital needs of our clients. Attorneys in our structured finance and securitizations practices in New York and London are routinely involved in the development of structures for traditional as well as esoteric and "off the run" assets and have particular expertise in areas where we are traditionally strong, such as power and energy, renewable energy, infrastructure and water, transportation finance and Latin America. With the assistance of lawyers in our internationally recognized tax, regulatory, bankruptcy and litigation practices, we bring useful perspective and familiarity with market developments and deliver top quality legal services to our clients.

We also have experience in various types of derivatives in connection with asset-backed and structured securities issuances, including interest rate and currency swaps, total return swaps, credit-linked notes and default swaps and options.

In the credit arbitrage market, Milbank has been at the forefront since the inception of CLOs in the late 1980s, and our attorneys have deep experience with diverse asset classes, from broadly syndicated and middle-market loans to asset-backed securities, project finance loans, distressed debt and distressed asset-backed securities. With our involvement in transactions utilizing innovative liability structures, including commercial paper tranches and conduits, liquidity facilities and synthetic equity tranches, we bring to our clients constructive and timely advice on current "best practices" in the credit arbitrage arena.

Our Structured Finance and Securitizations Group boasts a number of highly ranked partners and the practice is annually recognized in Chambers (USA and Global) and Legal 500 as being a responsive, creative, reliable and technically excellent group of attorneys active in wide variety of high-end and complex mandates in markets around the globe.
