Biography

Brian Burke has worked extensively within the capital and private equity markets. During the course of his career, Brian has worked closely with leading institutional clients, on a national scale, in the negotiation and preparation of secured and unsecured debt facilities and other structured finance offerings.

Brian began his legal career at the New York City office of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. In his time at Cadwalader, he completed in excess of 70 public residential prime mortgage-backed and asset-backed securitizations, with pool sizes ranging from approximately $150 million to $1.25 billion. Thereafter, Brian took a position at the Phoenix office of Snell & Wilmer, where he expanded his practice area into additional forms of securitizations and asset-backed quasi- and full-financing arrangements, including secured and unsecured revolving credit facilities. He has worked closely with institutional borrowers, developing approaches to interim financing arrangements to achieve true sale, regulatory and accounting objectives.
