Our Asset Finance and Securitization group advises clients on both regular term and bank financing transactions and on innovative and complex transactions including whole business securitizations and principal finance transactions that utilize structured finance techniques. We apply our depth and breadth of practice to a diverse range of transactions involving mainstream and exotic assets for clients that are new to structured finance and others that we have worked with for decades. We are regularly engaged in securitization transactions involving:
- auto and other vehicle loan, lease and floorplan assets
- marketplace loans
- trade receivables
- equipment loans
- commercial loans
- healthcare receivables
- credit card receivables
- timeshare loans
- single-family rental properties
- mortgage servicing rights
- manufactured housing loans
- other real estate-related assets
We develop novel, creative and constructive solutions, with a client noting to Chambers USA that "In terms of being able to handle complex and difficult negotiations we couldn't be happier than we are with Kirkland."
We also represent private equity funds and their portfolio companies on securitization matters.
Our attorneys actively participate in industry engagement, providing thought leadership to industry task forces and committees on legal and regulatory issues.
