    It’s coming up on awards season.  The Emmys were last week and weirdly, I got a thought bubble about nominees in the Black Swan category, walking the red carpet looking for attention!  Think the Masquerade scene from Phantom of the Opera when the Phantom comes prancing down the stairs to harsh the f…

    SASB: The (Shotgun?) Marriage of Mortgage and Mezz

    There’s a lot of reasons to structure a large loan destined for securitization as a mortgage in part and a mezzanine loan in part.  Sometimes it’s simply that the borrower is needy while the capital markets are charry.  In that case, the lender whacks up the credit into a mortgage loan for SASB exec…

    Dechert OnPoint: Shari’a Compliant Investment Agreements Do Not Qualify for Safe Harbor

    Sharia law prohibits interest, naturally putting financial minds to work on how to build structures around this religious prohibition. But a recent ruling has found that such investment agreements do not qualify for safe harbor provisions of the bankruptcy code. Shmuel Vasser breaks down the 100 pag…
