Mayer Brown continues Banking & Finance practice growth in New York with Evan Kelson

Mayer Brown announced today that Evan Kelson joined its Banking & Finance practice as a partner in New York, adding significant depth to its asset finance, receivables financing and securitization capabilities. Mr. Kelson joins from Reed Smith.

“Evan’s extensive experience—spanning finance, corporate and securities laws—will be invaluable in servicing our receivables finance clients in New York and elsewhere as we continue expanding our capabilities based on clients’ evolving needs,” said Paul Jorissen, co-leader of Mayer Brown's global Banking & Finance practice. “His skillset complements our leading global receivables finance team, which remains at the forefront advising clients on growing areas, including supply chain finance and receivables securitization.”

Mr. Kelson focuses his practice on financings of trade receivables, energy receivables, equipment leases and loans, credit card receivables, telecom receivables, consumer loans, small business loans, whole-business securitizations, and esoteric assets. He has extensive experience with trade receivables securitization, factoring transactions and receivable sale financings both domestically and internationally. Mr. Kelson also has experience with SPV asset-based lending, direct asset purchases, master trusts, and master note trusts. In addition, he has developed new financial products for US and offshore transactions in the public and private markets.

“Mayer Brown was the ideal choice for me, particularly given its reputation as the go-to firm for the creation and expansion of the global trade receivables securitization market,” said Mr. Kelson. “I look forward to working with the firm’s integrated, multidisciplinary team to ensure that our clients receive the highest quality service on major projects in jurisdictions across the globe.”

“Evan joins Mayer Brown as part of the continued expansion of our finance capabilities in New York,” said Matthew Ingber, the managing partner of Mayer Brown’s New York office. “Attracting top-tier talent like Evan symbolizes our ongoing commitment to strategic growth in key markets.”
