Glenn S. Arden

Glenn Arden has been a leading practitioner in the structured finance and derivatives markets since their inception in the 1980s. He was an early advisor in the integration of swaps and other derivatives into securitization structures, culminating in a pioneering role in the creation of synthetic CDOs and other transactions utilizing credit derivatives. He is experienced in the representation of issuers, sponsors, sellers, underwriters, liquidity and credit providers, servicers, derivative providers, investors, and rating agencies in connection with the issuance of asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities and cash, hybrid, and synthetic CDOs. Glenn is also a member of the Firm's opinion committee with primary responsibility for legal isolation opinions, both under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and U.S. banking laws.

Glenn's recent new issuance experience has included the first CMBS transaction under the government TALF program, multijurisdictional trade receivables facilities, and convertible debt and equity issuances coupled with equity derivatives transactions. As a member of the Firm's Financial Institutions Litigation & Regulation Practice, Glenn applies his experience to assisting clients in litigating and resolving disputes arising out of structured finance and derivatives transactions.

Glenn has been a frequent speaker on securitization and derivatives. He is the author of the chapter on "Derivatives and Securitization" in the treatise Securitizations: Legal and Regulatory Issues, published by Law Journal Press, and has served as an adjunct assistant professor of financial management at New York University, where he taught a graduate course in the legal analysis of structured finance.
