Charles RobertsPaul Hastings LLP

Paul Hastings LLP is still best known for its market-leading arranger-side CMBS practice but it has significantly broadened its scope in recent years. As well as a growing volume of servicer-side CMBS instructions, the firm is handling RMBS deals, loan-on-loan transactions for debt funds and CLOs for arranger banks. Among its major clients are Kensington Mortgage Company, Bluestone Mortgages, Deutsche Bank and Consensus Business Group. Commercial real estate specialist Miles Flynn and the ‘extremely reliable, resourceful and pragmatic‘ Paul Severs, who has more than 25 years’ experience in deals involving residential and commercial mortgages, consumer loans, revolving credits and whole business structures, jointly lead the practice. Charles Roberts, who also focuses on commercial real estate transactions, is a prominent figure in the market. Cameron Saylor‘s practice focuses on CLOs, on which he frequently advises leading banks including Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank. Clients appreciate ‘the speed and quality of initial responses, as well as the breadth and strength of the team‘.
