17 April 2008 - Leading international law firm Mayer Brown has been instructed by Neville Kahn, Nicholas Dargan and Mark Adams of Deloitte and Touche LLP to act for them as joint receivers of Golden Key Ltd. (in receivership), a Structured Investment Vehicle (SIV).

This is the most recent in a string of instructions for Mayer Brown in relation to the establishment and restructuring of SIVs. These include Carrera Capital Finance Limited, Rhinebridge PLC, Cheyne Finance PLC and the Master-Liquidity Enhancement Conduit (MLEC), among others.

Mayer Brown's knowledge of the SIV market comes from the breadth and depth of its participation in this area. In this regard, they continue to act for a broad range of stakeholders including sponsors, receivers, directors, investment managers, senior noteholders and other creditors, including liquidity providers.

Partner Ian Coles, head of finance at Mayer Brown, said: "We have a well established structured finance practice, with particular expertise in SIVs. This, coupled with our experienced restructuring and insolvency practice means we are ideally placed to advise on this complex transaction. The breadth of our experience, flexibility of our team and truly global reach means that as well as having the skills and expertise to effect market rescues generally, we are equally well placed to work with clients to take advantage of the opportunities arising from the credit crunch."
