Stephen Day is a partner in the Capital Markets Group, resident in the London office. He advises leading financial institutions and corporations in Europe and the United States in connection with a wide range of structured finance and securitisation transactions, with a focus on complex cross border deals. His work in this area includes structuring commercial paper conduits, structured investment vehicles, multi-country receivables (trade, auto loan/lease, credit card) securitisations, securitisation bridge and private equity take-out deals, whole business transactions and intellectual property financings.

Stephen has been named as a leading individual in securitisation, derivatives and structured products by Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners. The 2014 Chambers UK guide described Stephen as “brilliant” recognising the quality and breadth of his work across asset-backed and whole-business securitisation, with structured investment vehicles and in the commercial paper conduit space. Additionally, the 2012 edition of the Legal 500 UK remarked that he is mentally agile, particularly on complex cross-jurisdictional matters. The 2010 edition of Legal 500 UK noted that he is both “bright and knowledgeable, ” and that he ensures a smooth and secure outcome. In 2009, Legal 500 said that he is prominent in restructuring matters and is one of the European market's leading legal advisers with respect to structured investment vehicles.

He received his LL.B from The London School of Economics and Political Science, his LLM from New York University School of Law, and his LPC from The College of Law, London.

Stephen is admitted to practice in New York and is admitted to the roll of Solicitors of England and Wales.
