The London office of Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft has taken strides to replicate the success of its commercial mortgage-backed securitisation practice in the US
Investment bank JPMorgan Chase has instructed the firm as deal counsel for its first sterling commercial mortgage conduit programme in the UK. Stephen Mostyn-Williams, head of international banking and finance at Cadwalader, said: "We've structured a team to operate across the real estate, bank finance and capital markets disciplines. It will provide one-stop shop advice for financial institutions establishing UK and European schemes such as this." JPMorgan has a well-established commercial lending business in the US and along with Cadwalader is looking to tap into under-exploited markets in the UK and Europe. The bank uses its balance sheet to originate loans with a view to repackaging them into capital markets via securitisation. Cadwalader will handle the full life-cycle of JPMorgan's transactions.
