Nigel White is a partner in Mayer Brown’s Finance group. He acts for banks, financial institutions, other lenders and borrowers on a wide range of structured international finance transactions.
Nigel's practice is focused on secured international and domestic finance transactions with a particular emphasis on structured real estate investment and development finance (both origination and subsequent distribution) fund financing, debt portfolio acquisition/disposal and leveraged finance.
Nigel regularly acts on the acquisition and disposal of performing and non performing/distressed debt portfolios (both whole loan and tranched facilities). Whilst traditional distribution channels, such as syndication and securitisation, remain restricted and with the increase in default situations this has been an attractive transaction structure for lenders with a desire to reduce balance sheet exposure in certain sectors.
He joined Mayer Brown in 1991 and was named partner in 1996.
