Paul Hastings adds new structured finance and capital markets partner

Law firm Paul Hastings has appointed structured finance and capital markets specialist Paul Severs  as a partner in the firm’s Corporate practice ion London.

Severs will be joining the firm from Berwin Leighton Paisner, where he is Head of Structured Debt and Capital Markets.
Severs has extensive experience in the structured finance and securitisation markets across all asset classes. Most recently he has been advising on the establishment of new funds, establishing or acquiring new origination platforms, and advising portfolio companies.
He advises his clients on a wide range of transactions, including loan originations (and acquisitions or disposals associated with them); financing arrangements for acquisitions; real estate portfolio acquisitions (both residential and commercial); single-loan acquisitions and workouts; and portfolio workouts. Severs is highly recommended by leading legal guides including Chambers UK and Legal 500.
“The last five years has seen the rise of alternative financing platforms and a demand for multiple, diversified types of financing,” says Elizabeth Noe, Chair of the global Corporate Department at Paul Hastings. “Paul’s extensive experience in this space will materially enhance our ability to service that demand and will lend further impetus to our leading-edge finance offering in London.”
“Paul’s pedigree, practice and profile complements naturally our existing structured finance and funds practice in London and will enable us to continue to service the most demanding financial institutions and private equity firms in London and beyond,” says Ronan O’Sullivan, Chair of the London office. “He also works in the highly regulated consumer finance space, which naturally complements our growing London payment systems and consumer finance team.”
“Paul’s experience and impressive relationships make him a welcome addition to our European securitisation and structured finance team, and we look forward to working with him,” said London partner Charles Roberts.
