Victoria ThompsonMorgan, Lewis & Bockius UK LLP

Although it is narrower in scope than some of its peers in the ranking, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius UK LLP has a strong reputation advising on transatlantic ABL transactions for longstanding clients, including Wells Fargo, as well as  for a growing number of newer US funders making their first forays into the UK and European market. ‘Superb’ dual New York and UK-qualified team head Georgia Quenby has been integral to the firm’s success in the market and is appreciated for her ability to structure complex deals involving sophisticated intercreditor relationships. In this regard, Quenby is also well versed at protecting clients against future exposure in a distressed scenario and in the event of this happening, is well equipped to advise on the restructuring of ABL debt products. Victoria Thompson‘s dual US and UK qualifications also lend themselves to work on cross-border mandates with a transatlantic complexion, although her workload also includes advice for funds and alternative capital providers in the sector.
