Mitchell Naumoff


Washington, D.C.

Mitch is a structured finance lawyer with a distinct focus on advising investors and issuers in esoteric and consumer ABS transactions. 

His experience includes securitizing a diverse range of assets, including credit cards, personal loans, corporate loans, oil and gas wellbores, and cell tower ground leases. Mitch leverages his deep finance background and creative structuring skills in advising investors in 4(a)(2) transactions, particularly in the securitization of emerging esoteric asset classes. 

In addition to his investor-side practice, Mitch represents issuers and underwriters in securities backed by credit card and other consumer receivables. These transactions often involve master trust structures and span publicly registered, 144A, and private placements. 

Mitch also advises on regulatory considerations, such as application of risk-retention requirements, the Volcker Rule, and other aspects of the Dodd-Frank Act.

Before joining Orrick, Mitch was a partner in Chapman and Cutler’s Asset Securitization Department.
