Structured Finance

Our structured finance practice is made up of experienced banking and finance, capital markets, and tax lawyers.

They work together to provide clients with tax-efficient fundraising structures.

We provide expert advice on the full spectrum of structured finance transactions, structured products, and risk transfer programmes, including receivables origination, securitisation programmes, derivative products, structured note issuances, repurchase transactions, operating leases, and finance leases.
