Andrew Vickery - Linklaters LLP

Within: Structured products and securitisation

Linklaters LLP has 'quality right through the ranks, from the partners through their senior and junior associates, which arguably differentiates this practice from its peers', according to one client. The firm has one of the largest dedicated structured finance and securitisation practices globally, and it operates an integrated practice across the UK, continental Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. In 2018, it was involved in some of the largest securitisations in Europe, including some of the highest-profile RMBS transactions. It also acted in newly developing segments of the UK mortgage market, notably RMBS deals by non-bank UK mortgage originators, and is a prominent player in the non-performing loan (NPL) securitisationarea. Other key areas include auto-loans, led by up-and-coming partner Reza Taylor, and whole business securitisation. Andrew Vickery leads the structured finance practice, which includes leading lights such as Julian Davies, James Harbach and Adam Fogarty, as well as up-and-coming partner Alexander Shopov. The firm handles securitised derivatives, as well as SPV-based complex structured finance transactions, and among many partners specialising in derivatives and structured products are Matthew Monahan, Toby Gray, Michael Voisin, Paul Lewis and Simon Firth.
