Biography

Gary Silverstein represents issuers, underwriters, insurers, and other parties in connection with the tax aspects of mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities, REMICs, CLOs, CRE-CLOs, and other debt issuances. He has extensive experience in structuring commercial and residential mortgage-backed securitizations and resecuritizations (including RE-REMICs), and in other capital markets transactions. Gary advises borrowers and lenders (including securitization vehicles) in connection with loan workouts, foreclosures, and restructurings. He is also involved in the distressed asset market and in the formation of funds and other vehicles to hold new and/or seasoned mortgage loans and securities.

Gary also works closely with Cadwalader's real estate attorneys in the origination of large commercial loans for securitization or syndication and in advising loan participants that face the challenges of volatile market forces. He also advises both lenders and borrowers in their negotiations of credit agreements and repos.

Gary is a member of the Tax Section of the New York State Bar Association, the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Tax Subcommittee of the American Securitization Forum. He is the co-author of a chapter on taxation in the Mortgage and Asset Backed Securities Litigation Handbook (West). He has been a speaker at the ABA's annual convention in Washington, D.C., to discuss the taxation of mortgage securitization. Gary was acknowledged by The Legal 500 in 2010 for building an excellent reputation for his work in securitization, and again in 2011 for his complex and innovative instructions. More recently, Gary was recognized in the 2013 edition of IFLR 1000, along with other Cadwalader attorneys, for his knowledge of the CMBS market.

Gary graduated with a B.A., cum laude, in Economics from Yeshiva University, received his J.D. from Columbia University Law School, and earned his LL.M. degree in Taxation from New York University School of Law. He is admitted to practice in the State of New York.
