Christopher WalshClifford Chance LLP

The team has both a great depth of knowledge but also great pragmatism in applying it and advises very much through a “real world” lens‘, remark clients of Clifford Chance LLP. The firm has an impressive track record of market firsts and has played a key role in developing the securitisation over the years, and it remains involved in major structured finance and securitisation transactions. Among these is its work on a next-generation programmatic RMBS structure for HSBC and Lloyds Bank, and its work for Morgan Stanley on the first fully broadly syndicated RMBS since the outbreak of the Covid-19 crisis, which was backed by UK buy-to-let assets. Key partner Christopher Walsh led that transaction. Practice head Kevin Ingramknows almost everything there is to know about securitisation‘. Real estate finance partner Emma Matebalavu, structured debt partner Maggie Zhao and developing markets trade receivables specialist Simeon Radcliff also play pivotal roles in the practice. Adam Craig, who was promoted to partner in 2021, ‘always makes sure to focus on the outcome‘. Andrew Forryan retired.
