Work Department

Asset Finance & Securitzation

Position

Jeff O'Connor is a partner in Kirkland's Chicago office. He concentrates his practice in the area of asset finance and securitization and has counseled clients in a broad range of asset securitization, structured finance, secured lending and receivables sale transactions. Jeff represents several frequent issuers of automobile and truck retail note, lease and floorplan ABS. He often deals with novel structures to satisfy unique client demands, such as a floorplan master trust capable of issuing separate series backed solely by overconcentration receivables, mixed lease and retail loan transactions, amortizing series where amortization is tied to an external benchmark rather than the receivables amortization, whole business securitizations, and foreign currency denominated transactions. Jeff has substantial securities law experience and has counseled clients in connection with complex offering issues. In addition to representing issuers, underwriters and placement agents, he has represented other transaction participants, including third-party servicers and trustees.
