Anthony R.G. Nolan Joins Goodwin Procter LLP in New York

BOSTON, January 3 , 2005 – Goodwin Procter LLP today announced the addition of Anthony R.G. Nolan to the firm’s Business Law Department.  He joins the firm as partner in its New York office.

In his new position at Goodwin Procter, Nolan brings 10 years of experience in public and private securitization and structured finance, warehouse facilities, asset-backed commercial paper and other related transactions in the United States and abroad.

Nolan has securitized a broad variety of asset classes, including  commercial mortgages (conduit loans, single property loans and “mini-pools”), consumer receivables such as automobile loans and leases, aircraft lease portfolios, project finance loans, intellectual property (including entertainment and patent royalties) and esoteric asset classes such as franchise loans, tax liens and statutory reimbursement rights.

Nolan also has extensive experience in the area of collateralized debt obligations (“CDOs”) and collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs”) and has represented collateral managers and others in CDOs and CLOs backed by asset-backed securities, high-yield securities, commercial loans and project finance loans, among other underlying assets.

He has represented issuers, underwriters, servicers, bond insurers and others in registered offerings, private placements and offshore offerings.   His clients include major financial institutions, fund managers and leasing companies.

Nolan is a valuable addition to Goodwin Procter’s Business Law Department as the firm continues to grow its New York office and expand its corporate and transactional capabilities.  Nolan will help the firm expand its CDO/CLO practice and will play an important role in the development of Goodwin Procter’s securitization and structured finance practice more generally.

Prior to joining Goodwin Procter, Nolan was a Counsel in the Securitization and Derivatives Group of Shearman & Sterling LLP.  He received his B.A. and M.A. from Oxford University and his J.D. from Columbia Law School.
