Tauhid IjazHogan Lovells International LLP

Hogan Lovells International LLPpresents a deep knowledge of trade receivables or auto securitisation which relies on outstanding individuals‘, remarks one client. Another notes that the practice, led by Julian Craughan, who focuses on deals involving consumer assets including residential, automotive and lease receivable securitisation, and Tauhid Ijaz, whose broad practice spans portfolio sales, restructurings and mortgage-backed deals, is ‘extraordinarily collaborative‘. The firm has established itself as a market leader in automotive and lease transactions, though it has continued to expand its presence in other areas, notably RMBS transactions. Craughan recently acted for UK mortgage lender Enra Specialist Finance in its £268m debut RMBS backed by second-lien mortgages and first-lien buy-to-let mortgages. Kit Johnson advises corporate finance trustees across the range of structured finance products. US-qualified partner Dennis Dillon ‘takes the time to explain very clearly the issues and drives the discussions by proposing different options‘. He primarily handles trade receivables securitisations and commercial paper conduits.
