UK: English Securitisation Partner Joins Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP Finance Team
Last Updated: 29 April 2003

Richard Ambery, the former co-head of securitisation at Dechert in London is joining the Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP Finance team from 22 April 2003. He brings with him assistant Mark Thomas.

Richard, who had previously worked under Robert Palache at Clifford Chance prior to joining Dechert, has wide ranging experience across the full spectrum of products within the securitisation industry. While at Dechert, where he was responsible for the initiation and the building of the firm's securitisation team, he has specialised in mortgage backed and property related structured finance products. Mark Thomas has worked extensively with Richard in developing these areas.

The arrival of Richard and Mark brings the London based securitisation team at MBR&M LLP to 4 partners and 10 fee-earners in addition to the large number of lawyers from other practice areas (such as tax and real estate) who work with the team on a daily basis. In addition to its well-known conduit work, the team also serves clients on a range of term transactions in areas such as CDOs and emerging markets and property-based transactions. Last year was a very successful one for the team, including representing the originator in what is believed to be the largest auto lease securitisation in the UK to date.

Richard Ambery said "I am excited at the prospect of becoming a key partner in the securitisation team with MBR&M LLP in London. As a result of the practice's
pre-eminent reputation in securitisation in the U.S. and its full service capabilities in London, the team has already made great strides in London and the rest of Europe. I look forward to being able to assist in accelerating that progress".

Ian Coles, Head of the Finance Group said, "Richard will be a real boost to our leading securitisation practice and we are delighted to welcome him to the London office. His particular expertise in mortgage backed products will add a new dimension to our capabilities. We are confident that we will continue to attract further lawyers of Richard's calibre to the group. Attracting top-level partners like Richard is a testament to the continuing success of the Finance group and the Combination as a whole".
