Practice/Industry Group Overview

Many of Mayer Brown's largest clients are bank holding companies, commercial banks, investment banks, insurance companies, leasing companies, asset-based lenders or institutional real estate companies. Our Banking & Finance practice also represents numerous finance companies and fixed income funds, mezzanine investors, hedge funds, financial service boutiques, spin-offs and other financial institutions and investors, as well as a large number of borrowers operating in many different businesses and industries.

As financial institutions become one-stop shops and transactions increasingly combine a broader range of products, including securitization and derivatives, the number of law firms that can meet all these requirements under one roof is declining. Mayer Brown is one of the few that has both the breadth of offering and the international platform to service these needs—particularly when markets are volatile and deal structures can change overnight. We have extensive experience in numerous areas of banking and finance including:

  • Asset Finance
  • Bank Asset Sale Initiative
  • CDOs and CLOs
  • Derivatives & Structured Products
  • Emerging Markets
  • Leveraged Finance  
  • Projects
  • Real Estate Finance
  • Social Finance
  • Structured Finance

Other legal services offered to the banking industry include:

  • Bank mergers and acquisitions (regulatory and all other requirements, due diligence and transaction documentation)
  • Financial restructuring and bankruptcy
  • Financial services regulatory
