Best Securitization Law Firm in Asia

Japanese Securitization Deal of the Year (IFLR) 

Atsumi & Partners has a proven track record in advising clients on international finance related matters, assisting clients on many innovative and award-winning transactions that have been awarded “Deal of the Year” and other awards by leading international legal and financial publications, including the International Financing Review, Asiamoney, and the International Financial Law Review. In 2005, Atsumi & Partners received an award for the “Securitization Deal of the Year” at the Asian Legal Business Deal of the Year Awards, held in Tokyo. Of the nine transactions nominated in this category, Atsumi & Partners advised on no less than three, including the transaction that earned the award.

Atsumi & Partners itself was also voted “Best Securitisation Law Firm in Asia” for 2003 by the International Securitisation Report.

The Firm has played a pivotal role in many other award winning transactions, including the deal hailed as Japan’s first securitization of residential mortgage loans; another as the world’s largest multi-issue CLO and the first master-trust CLO program in Japan by a Japanese bank; the first securitization of residential mortgages from multiple originators in Japan for issuance of multiple-tranche securities to investors; and the first repackaged CMBS in Japan by a Japanese bank. The frequency with which the media report on, and award, deals on which we advise is testimony to our firm’s ability to successfully provide clients with a high level of service particularly on large, complex, international transactions.
