Commercial Real Estate CLOs

“[Cadwalader is an] industry leader in CMBS and CLOs, including standout capabilities in CRE CLOs.” – Chambers USA

Cadwalader’s global commercial real estate securitization team has unparalleled expertise in commercial real estate CLOs, commanding “Band 1” recognition for “Securitization: CRE CLOs” by Chambers USA and earning “Structured Finance Group of the Year” recognition by Law360 in 2021. Evidencing our market-leading role, our team advised on 43 CRE CLO transactions, as issuer and underwriter counsel, with aggregate value exceeding $38 billion in 2021 – more than any other law firm. In Europe, our transatlantic team advised on the ground-breaking Starz Mortgage Securities 2021-1 transaction, the first CRE CLO in Europe since the credit crisis.

We have been deeply involved in the development of CRE CLOs, advising numerous issuers, underwriters and collateral managers through the evolution of the market post-credit crisis. Our team has advised more than half of CRE CLO issuers active in the market in the last two years, including establishing platforms for many first-time issuers. The convergence of our transatlantic strength in commercial real estate securitization and corporate CLOs, and the deep expertise of our tax and financial regulatory teams in these areas, make Cadwalader the global market leader.
