Mayer Brown has maintained an active and varied CDO and CLO practice for over 20 years—advising sponsors, arrangers, collateral managers, investors and trustees on transactions and portfolio matters.

We went on to help develop the trust preferred CDO market as a capital raising vehicle for smaller banks and insurance companies and also REITs. Trust preferred CDOs have become indispensable to smaller or regional banks and insurance companies needing to raise smaller amounts of hybrid capital.
