In addition to representing other securitization transaction participants, Chapman and Cutler is nationally recognized as a leading counsel to trustees, collateral agents, collateral administrators, custodians, servicers, back-up servicers, and transition managers in virtually all manner of securitization and structured finance transactions.

We also represent banks and trust companies acting as trustee, collateral agent, escrow agent, and custodian in more traditional corporate lending transactions. Our attorneys have been at the forefront of developing appropriate standards for institutions serving as back-up servicers and transition managers. Additionally, we have extensive experience in conducting due diligence on behalf of banks in connection with their appointments as successor trustees and servicers for mortgage and asset-backed portfolios. We also counsel successor servicers in negotiations involving portfolio-servicing transactions.

As an adjunct to these representations, we also provide advice and training to our trustee clients with respect to the changing regulatory landscape. In virtually all cases, we adopt a team approach that enables us to provide outstanding service to our clients acting in these capacities.
