Structured Finance Group Of The Year: Cadwalader

February 14, 2023

Cadwalader Capital Markets co-chairs Mike Gambro and Stu Goldstein were interviewed as part of their team’s second consecutive recognition as a Law360 “Structured Finance Group of the Year,” during which they discuss their group’s long-standing leadership in the structured finance and securitization fields and some of their team’s award-winning transactions over the past year.

As Law360 describes: The team’s “… institutional knowledge has set up the 230-year-old firm to lead the charge on innovative transactions, including advising issuer Wells Fargo Bank NA on the securitization of a $1.5 billion floating-rate loan that financed Blackstone's buy of affordable housing in Florida.”

Says Gambro on the team’s market-leading presence: "We have the historical background, we have the practitioners that helped develop the structured finance practice over the years, as well as the generations that followed."

Goldstein addressed the important cross-border capabilities of the U.S. and London Capital Markets teams, which enable the group to take on high-profile transatlantic representations: "In order to do transactions in the United States that appeal to investors in the EU or in the U.K., we have to have a top-notch regulatory capability, which we do have in London and vice versa, as well. A lot of these transactions are cross border and since there will be investors that are across the pond… in whichever direction that requires us to be able to deal with the regulatory environment that is created by the different jurisdictions."
