Asset-Backed Finance

Paul Hastings regularly advises its clients on some of the most complex and bespoke transactions in the ever-evolving asset backed finance market. With extensive experience representing clients ranging from highly sophisticated financial institutions to first-time issuers and startups, we are highly adept at anticipating our clients’ unique needs and proactively advising them, from both a legal and business perspective, on all aspects of a particular transaction, and beyond, to help our clients strive for the optimal outcome in any given situation and help them build the strongest platforms possible for future success.
