We understand the business, regulatory, accounting, tax and administrative issues that come with structured finance and securitization transactions for all asset classes.
Our team combines lawyers from banking, debt capital markets, bankruptcy and insolvency, securities and capital markets, commercial real estate, tax and corporate commercial law.
The result is a dedicated and comprehensive focus on addressing your needs from every angle and solving your unique issues.
We counsel clients on:
- special purpose entities and bankruptcy remote structures
- trustees, issuers, arrangers, debt providers, equity participants, lessees and debtors on structured finance transactions
- financial institutions about regulatory requirements and restrictions on structuring transactions and dealing with regulators on rulings, clearances and consents in transactions
We also advise on the income tax, capital tax, and goods and services tax, litigation options, and insolvency aspects of securitization transactions.
Our lawyers regularly advise all of Canada’s largest banks, many other Schedule I, II and III banks, insurance companies, credit unions, pension funds, trust companies, asset-based lenders, investment funds, debt funds, and many leading U.S. and other foreign financial institutions, as well as all types of borrowers and issuers.
