Within: Structured finance and securitisation

As an integral part of the firm’s DCM practice, Hogan Lovells International LLP’s ‘very client-focused and efficient’ securitisation team is ‘very experienced in securitisation transactions’, most notably in the automotive sector, and has expertise in securitised derivatives. The latter area received a boost when Jochen Seitz, Peter Maier and counsel Markus Brusch joined the firm at the end of 2017 from Mayer Brown LLP. Clients, including several German and international banks, also benefit from the team’s ‘excellent service level’ and its ‘balanced price-performance ratio’ as well as its ‘very good international network and internal co-operation, leading to seamless support in cross-border matters’. Sven Brandt advised Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank on the drafting and drawing of an €8bn structured bond and certificates programme, while Seitz and Maier assisted an international investment bank with the creation of an issuing platform to facilitate the issuance of various structured products such as debt securities, certificates and leverage products. The ‘solution-oriented’ Dietmar Helms, who also stands out for his ‘good understanding of clients’ needs and openness to innovative structures’, and, according to clients, is ‘among the leading lawyers in the German-speaking region for ABS transactions’, advised Société Générale on the securitisation of German auto loans. Julian Fischer is also recommended.
