Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS)
King & Spalding’s commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) cross-disciplinary team advises leading financial services institutions, including issuers, underwriters, collateral managers, originators and investors, in connection with CMBS-related matters. Our team represents these banks, REITS, and other companies across the commercial mortgage spectrum, from mortgage loan originations and securitization transactions, to fund formation and investment structuring, and in matters of regulatory compliance and securities and bankruptcy litigation. We leverage the experience of our transactional structured finance lawyers and seasoned litigators, who have defended hundreds of securities class actions and bet-the-company litigation, to address issues unique to CMBS.
We are well-versed on all aspects of CMBS, including loan origination and product structuring, as well as the regulatory framework and potential litigation risks. We are uniquely positioned to analyze the risks associated with individual properties as part of a collateral pool for a transaction, given our extensive experience with individual property loans.
We analyze and anticipate points of potential weakness from both a regulatory and litigation perspective and prepare to defend our clients’ structures against both private litigation and public investigations.
