Biography

Michael Gambro is Co-Chair of Cadwalader's Capital Markets Group. He is a corporate and securities lawyer who advises corporations, financial institutions and funds in acquisitions, financings and securitizations of financial assets, including commercial and residential mortgage loans, trade receivables, royalty payments, lease receivables and other payment obligations.

Michael has represented some of the largest companies in the world in many noteworthy transactions, including acting as lead counsel in some of the largest single-borrower commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) transactions, and other groundbreaking or one-of-a-kind structured finance transactions recognized as deals of the year by Institutional Investor and Investment Dealer's Digest.

Since 2009, Michael has been a leading attorney on transactions that have helped revive the CMBS market, including: the Developers Diversified Realty CMBS deal, which was the only CMBS deal made eligible for financing under the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility; the novel One Bryant Park and 7 World Trade Center securitizations, involving tranches of taxable CMBS debt and tranches of tax-exempt bonds; and the securitization of loans secured by substantially all of the assets of Hilton Worldwide Inc. and its subsidiaries. Michael has also advised clients in the structuring of the first securitization financings of nonperforming commercial mortgage loans since 1997.

Michael received his J.D. from Columbia University School of Law, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, and his B.S. from Tufts University, where he graduated summa cum laude and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He is listed in The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the East, IFLR 1000, Legal500 and Who's Who in American Law and has lectured and written articles on numerous business law topics.

Michael is licensed to practice in New York, California (inactive) and New Jersey.
