Retained Interest is Mayer Brown’s structured finance blog designed to provide clients updates and analysis on legal and regulatory developments impacting the structured finance industry. Our blog contributors provide insights related to developments and innovations in the structured finance industry and concise and timely briefings on current issues affecting financial asset transactions.
Mayer Brown’s Structured Finance practice is consistently ranked in the top tier by leading legal directories and is one of the most balanced in the industry, with genuine strengths across the entire range of vehicles and asset classes – from mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed commercial paper, credit cards, and auto/equipment loans and leases to IP assets, marketplace loans, renewable energy, whole businesses, and insurance-linked securities. We are leaders in not only ABS/MBS transactions but also in transactions privately funded by banks, hedge funds and asset-backed commercial conduits. Many of the structured finance transactions that are commonplace today were first initiated by lawyers at Mayer Brown – for example, the first CLO transaction in 1988 and the first ABS shelf registration in 1992.
