Howard Goldwasser Partner Structured Finance, Asset Backed Securities

New York

Howard Goldwasser has a broad range of transactional experience with a focus on structured finance and securitization of both traditional and non-traditional asset classes, including CDOs and CLOs, “marketplace” loans, credit card receivables, trade receivables, airline ticket receivables, drug royalty receivables and covered bonds.

His clients include investment banks, commercial banks, non-bank lenders, hedge funds and investment managers.

Howard is recognized as a market-leading lawyer in the U.S. CLO space. He has advised on the structuring of U.S. CLOs and CDOs since the emergence of the U.S. CLO and CDO markets in the mid-1990s. Post-financial crisis, he has been advising both arrangers and collateral managers in the “CLO 2.0” market that emerged in the years after the financial crisis. Howard has done pioneering work in the area of securitization risk retention, in particular with respect to the creation of so-called “CMVs” (capitalized management vehicles) and “C-MOAs” (capitalized majority-owned affiliates) designed to enable collateral managers to source third-party debt and equity to facilitate compliance with both the U.S.'s and the European Union's securitization risk retention rules. He is also an innovator in the area of CLO warehousing, where he has designed traditional and non-traditional warehousing programs for CLO arrangers.

Howard also represents banks and non-bank lenders on syndicated and bilateral financings, senior secured term loan financings, receivables and asset-based financings, in particular, financings related to the warehousing of financial assets for securitization.
