Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners has been ranked among the leaders on securitization and mortgage bonds by Cbonds Information Agency.
The ratings are based on the assessment of the law firms’ performance on the Russian securitization and mortgage securities market by the number of supported transactions and the number of borrowers for whom the funds were involved in the transaction. The ranking addresses balance and off-balance securitization transactions, where the funds have been technically allocated in 2017.
The Firm’s Banking & Finance and Capital Markets Practice is among the market leaders. Over the last year, the team led by Partner Dmitriy Glazounov has provided legal support to a number of landmark transactions. Thus, in 2017 the Firm’s lawyers have successfully completed their work providing legal support for a project called the Mortgage Securities Factory, a new tool used by the Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending (AHML) to refinance mortgages. The high level of the practice lawyers’ expertise has been recognized by a number of competent guides and professional awards, including Chambers, Legal 500, IFLR1000, Pravo.ru, as well as by dozens of other awards, won over the recent years.
