19 May 2010 – Mayer Brown, a leading global law firm, has garnered a top ranking for legal advisors on asset-backed deals in the latest U.S. capital markets review issued by Thomson Reuters.
The firm ranked first for issuer counsel in the rankings for asset-backed deals in the first quarter 2010 both by number (7) and value (more than $6 billion).

“We are delighted to work with so many of our clients who are leading the way in getting deals done,” said Mayer Brown partner Stuart Litwin, a co-leader of the firm’s Securitization Group.
Mayer Brown also ranked second in the following categories: global asset-backed securities – issuer advisor, global asset-backed securities – manager advisor, U.S. asset-backed securities – manager advisor, and all international securitizations – manager advisor.

Mayer Brown is widely acknowledged as having one of the premiere securitization practices in the world, and according to Chambers Global 2009 is “fully deserving of its place among the elite.” With more than 100 structured finance lawyers in offices across the Americas, Asia and Europe, Mayer Brown has one of the largest structured finance practices in the world and has been at the leading edge of securitization from its early days.
