Mayer Brown is a distinctively global law firm, uniquely positioned to advise the world’s leading companies and financial institutions on their most complex deals and disputes.  With extensive reach across four continents, we are the only integrated law firm in the world with approximately 200 lawyers in each of the world’s three largest financial centers—New York, London and Hong Kong—the backbone of the global economy.  Given our firm’s preeminent securitization and mortgage market experience, it is not surprising that the firm counts among its lawyers some of the leading covered bond practitioners.  From advising clients on the first covered bonds under taken by a U.S. depository institution, to advising Canadian and other non-U.S. banks on their covered bond issuances, to undertaking the first U.S. public offering of covered bonds in the United States, Mayer Brown lawyers have been front and center.  Our long experience with covered bonds and our knowledge of bank regulatory issues, the mortgage markets, financial institutions and financing techniques makes us a worthy partner to our issuer, dealer, initial purchaser, and underwriter clients.
