Locke Lord is one of only a handful of American law firms for whom the representation of corporate trustees is a primary practice area. A skilled and experienced team of lawyers provides a full range of services to corporate trustees across the spectrum of all types and phases of transactions and corporate trust activities (including but not limited to trustees, custodians, collateral agents and escrow agents). Firm lawyers are not only seasoned and knowledgeable about the primary and tangential legal issues and considerations involved, but also have a broad understanding of corporate trust transactions and the latest developments in the legal, administrative and transactional environment in which corporate trustees participate.
The range of services provided is complete across the spectrum and includes:
The services of the Firm span the breadth of the types of transactions in which corporate trustees participate, including corporate, municipal and structured finance transactions which are mortgage-backed, asset-backed, synthetics, leases, derivatives, CDOs, CLOs and many other types.
For the Firm, the representation of corporate trustees is a primary practice area in its own right, and not the mere extension of the lawyers whose primary focus is the representation of other participants in corporate trust transactions. The manner in which this specialized practice is carried out derives from both the culture of the Firm and its deep experience for over half a century in corporate trust transactions. These characteristics include responsiveness and timeliness to the needs of clients, the willingness to provide experienced and informed counsel to corporate trustees in all matters relating to their business and the transactions in which they participate, as well as flexibility and creativity in crafting solutions to problems, while never straying from the primary consideration of providing legal protection to the corporate trustee against the perils to which it might potentially be exposed.
A primary emphasis remains at all times on collaboration between client and lawyer, between experienced senior lawyers and younger lawyers and among the lawyers who are expert in corporate trustee representation, whether their primary emphasis is on corporate trust transactions, origination and administration, defaults and workouts, bankruptcy, litigation, regulatory, or any of the other disciplines which become involved in the representation of corporate trustees.
For over half a century, Locke Lord corporate trust lawyers have placed their primary focus on the representation and protection of corporate trustees, and this team of lawyers is prepared to bring its experience to bear on the needs of corporate trustees today.
