Matthew S. Feig has hopped over to Stroock & Stroock & Lavan from Cadwalder, Wickersham & Taft. He was started June 7 in the N.Y. office as special counsel in the structured finance and insurance practice groups.
"[Feig’s] deep understanding of the complexities involved with catastrophe bonds and related structured products are an excellent complement to Stroock's structured finance and insurance teams," said Bernhardt M. Nadell, partner in Stroock's Insurance Practice Group.
His work at Cadwalader focused on risk-linked securities and structured and corporate finance. He was involved in a number of CAT bonds over the past several years by representing sponsors and leading underwriters in the issue and purchase of these deals. Recent transactions that Feig has worked on include Long Point Re III, Res Re 2012, Pelican Re, and Akibare II.
Prior to Cadwalader, Feig was an associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
Feig has published several articles on Structured Finance issues, such as "The Credit Crisis and Insurance-Linked Securities: No Catastrophe for Catastrophe Bonds" in The Journal of Structured Finance. He is also the co-author of a chapter of The Handbook of Insurance-Linked Securities.
