Morgan Lewis Adds 6th Structured Finance Partner in UK
Global law firm Morgan Lewis has a sixth partner to its London structured transactions team, which was launched just last summer.
Lisa Cargill focuses on securitizations and structured finance transactions. She was previously a counsel in the London office of Sidley Austin LLP, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Cargill advises financial institutions, investment funds, and corporates. Her experience covers a variety of asset classes across numerous jurisdictions, including trade receivables, auto loans and leases, residential mortgages, equipment leases, insurance premium loans, and both corporate and consumer loans originated through marketplace lending platforms.
“We look forward to Lisa advising on a broad range of structured transactions carried out by European companies,” Jami McKeon, firm chair of Morgan Lewis said in a press release. He said Cargill will also partner with the firm’s structured transaction team in the United States to help clients based there with business dealings in Europe.
Morgan Lewis is a major player in the U.S. structured finance market, where it has advised on more than 7,000 deals with a combined value of over $3 trillion since its inception in 2002, according to information posted on its website.
The firm established its London structured finance practice in July 2015 when it recruited a team from K&L Gates: Matthew Duncan, Julian A. Goodman and Paul J. Matthews. It later recruited two more from K&L Gates, Theresa Kradjian, a structured finance partner, and Paul Beausang, a corporate tax partner.
