INDUSTRIES & PRACTICES
OUR SEASONED LAWYERS HAVE SEEN THE WORLD OF SECURITIZATION AND DERIVATIVES PRACTICE FROM INCEPTION TO TODAY.
Dorsey lawyers have been involved in securitization from its inception, and we’ve seen it all –good ideas, bad ideas, positive impacts and negative impacts. We’ve represented all categories of participants – issuers, borrowers, trustees, warehouse lenders, investors, credit enhancers and underwriters. We handled a number of “first of its kind” securitizations, including the first net interest margin securitization, the first Section 150(d)(3) student loan securitization, the first securitization of commodities, one of the first securitizations of tax-exempt leases and the first securitization of destroyed notes.
