Hunton & Williams added Angus Duncan as a partner in its structured finance and securitization practice in London.
Duncan brings more than 25 years of experience handling complex structured finance and specialty finance transactions. He was previously a partner at Winston & Strawn, according to his LinkedIn profile. He has represented clients on securitizations and financings involving a range of assets, including loans, consumer receivables, real estate, and hedge fund interests. His experience includes a number of “market firsts” including Europe’s first CRE CDO, the first European pro rata CLO, the first European CLO managed by a hedge fund and the first catastrophe bond transaction incorporating a tri-partite repo structure.
Recently, Duncan’s practice has had a focus on acting for new entrants to the financial markets, both in the U.K. and overseas.
He also advises on insurance-linked securities, including sidecars, industry loss warranties and privately placed transactions with respect to catastrophe, mortality and longevity risk using the capital markets. “Angus brings significant experience with U.K. and E.U. structured finance transactions and securitization markets,” Thomas Y. Hiner, who heads the structured finance and securitization practice with Michael Nedzbala, said in a press release published this week.
“He will be a great fit as we further solidify our position as a global structured finance, specialty finance and securitization practice.”
A graduate of the University of Manchester, Duncan is consistently recognized by industry publications and independent commentators such as The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners as one of the world’s leading securitization, structured finance and derivatives lawyers.
