Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP has a large securitisation practice with seven partners and two special counsel handling a range of work as broad as any firm in the City. From securitising traditional, niche or cutting-edge new asset classes to developing suitable structures to match the specific needs of clients as part of re-emergence of synthetic securitisation transactions, the firm is ‘extremely knowledgeable, very commercial, responsive and cost-efficient and it has great depth‘. The firm has a long track record of market-first transactions, either in terms of jurisdiction or underlying asset, and it continues to be involved in cutting-edge deals. It has one of the busiest CLO practices in the City and continues to be active in key asset classes such as CMBS, consumer loans and credit card receivables. The senior team comprises partner Suzanne Bell (who is ‘a plain speaker who doesn’t get caught up in jargon‘), Robert Cannon (who is ‘very technical and a great source of knowledge‘), Stephen Day (who is ‘a calming influence in complex negotiations‘), the versatile Nick Shiren, and CLO specialists Claire PuddicombeDavid Quirolo and Daniel Tobias.
