Reed Smith’s structured finance team draws on the experience of our banking, capital markets, tax, regulatory, litigation, restructuring, and real estate finance groups across the firm to advise our clients.
Structured finance is frequently cross-border, and we are fortunate to be able to rely on our 31 global offices – located in the United States, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe – to ensure we provide a comprehensive and global service.
We advise major financial institutions, investment firms, and corporations on their activities across a range of structured finance products, with capabilities spanning general business, corporate governance, regulatory, and transactional matters, as well as dispute resolution.
Using our experience and deep knowledge of structured finance, we work with clients across a range of structured products, including:
- All short-term debt instruments, including commercial paper and medium-term notes, whether as a stand-alone issuance or as part of a more complex financing arrangement.
- CLOs and CDOs involving Eurobonds and domestic bonds, government debt, loans, commodity futures, and other derivatives.
- Securitizations covering a wide variety of assets (including real estate, commercial and residential mortgages, consumer loans, commercial loans, future flow, credit card and export receivables, trade receivables, automobile loans, equipment leases, utility and infrastructure cash flows, shipping containers, and whole businesses).
