The firm of Mayer Brown has announced that it has formed a Subprime Lending Response Team to help clients address the issues resulting from the continuing distress in the subprime lending market.

The impact of the subprime lending markets is reverberating worldwide and regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. and Europe is increasing. Recognizing the global nature of the problem, Mayer Brown has assembled an interdisciplinary team of lawyers from its offices in the U.S., the UK, and Germany whose practices include securitization, banking, real estate, securities, and litigation.

The firm has expertise with the securitization and collateralized debt obligation (CDO) markets across multiple industries and national borders and its lawyers comprise one of the largest groups in the world in this area. Mayer Brown also has an accomplished financial services regulatory legal practice and a financial restructuring and bankruptcy practice noted for its depth and breadth of success. The Subprime Lending Response Team will enhance the firm's recognized position as a leading legal adviser in these markets by also offering dispute management and regulatory services to clients facing the increased risks of litigation and regulatory inquiry.
