Securities backed by financial assets are a worldwide commercial funding source valued in the trillions of dollars. In recent years, structured finance transactions have increased in complexity and sophistication. Those seeking such arrangements need a law firm with a deep understanding of the finance industry, broad experience in financial transactions and the ability to adapt to market changes. Holland & Knight is that firm.

Drawing from a wealth of technical knowledge and industry experience, Holland & Knight's Structured Finance Team advises clients on a variety of debt, equity and hybrid financing techniques. In addition, we ensure that clients remain in compliance with all applicable federal banking law and finance law requirements. We use an informed and innovative approach to meet our clients' objectives in both domestic and international cross-border transactions and weigh tax consequences and legal constraints to develop the most advantageous funding arrangement possible.
