Jeremy Levy - Baker McKenzie

Within: Securitisation

Baker McKenzie¬†has reshaped its securitisation practice following the departure of key partners¬†Jonathan Walsh, who¬†moved to¬†Ashurst, and Simon Schiff, who left the firm in 2018 to found his own structured finance consultancy.¬†Capital markets expert¬†Simon Porter¬†leads the practice and advises on debt, equity, equity-linked and structured products. He is head of the firm's corporate trust group and advises issuers and trustees, although he increasingly acts for arrangers in complex transactions.¬†Of counsel¬†Phung Pham, who leads the firm's derivatives practice, frequently advises on¬†hedging and rating agency requirements related to securitisations. Newly promoted partner¬†Jeremy Levy¬†acts for sponsors, originators, arrangers and trustees in securitisation and other structured finance transactions involving trade receivables, residential mortgages and auto loans.¬†The firm acted for¬†Bank of America Merrill Lynch as arranger and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays Bank plc and Santander Global Corporate Banking as joint lead managers in a ‚ā¨699m issuance of notes backed by¬†Finnish auto loans. The deal was led by Walsh before his departure, but¬†associate¬†Sarah Porter¬†played a key role. With Simon Porter, she handled high-profile defaults, including the ‚ā¨2.7bn Air Berlin default, for trustee BNP Paribas.
