London > Finance > Securitisation

Slaughter and May has ‘a highly cohesive team that delivers a seamless service regardless of transaction complexity‘. Oliver Wicker and Guy O’Keefe are the lead partners in a 17-partner finance practice, in which all lawyers handle a broad range of work from securitisation and structured finance to debt capital markets. This multi-specialist approach sees the firm involved in RMBS, CMBS, credit card, trade receivables, auto-loans and WBS deals, as well as CLOs and covered bonds. Known best as an issuer-side practice, it increasingly acts for banks and other financial institutions, as well as investment funds, insurers, pension funds and sovereign entities. Wicker acted for Arrow Global Group Plc in the establishment of a €104.7m amortising asset-backed securitisation facility. Richard Jones has almost 20 years’ experience in securitisations involving credit card, store card, point-of-sale, personal loan, auto loan and mortgage receivables.
