The ABA Young Leaders in Securitization and Structured Finance is a growing subcommittee of the Business Law Section (BLS) Committee for Securitization and Structured Finance. The committee and the Young Leaders are at the forefront of discussing and tackling new issues in the growing field of structured finance. Most recently, the Young Leaders hosted a discussion exploring some of the opportunities and career paths in securitization and structured finance available for young lawyers.
The discussion, hosted by the Young Leaders and joined by the panelists Claire Hall, Partner in DLA Piper’s Structured Finance Practice; Kira Brereton, Associate General Counsel at S&P Global Ratings; and Joel Kwan, an Associate at Paul Hastings LLP, was a great opportunity for young lawyers to learn about various career paths available to securitization attorneys. The discussion was well attended and provided a resource for new attorneys to develop a career plan in the securitization and structured finance field.
The BLS Committee for Securitization and Structured Finance and the Young Leaders subcommittee are both planning to hold additional events furthering interest and development in the securitization sector. The Young Leaders also hope to continue to host events for young lawyers who are in the sector or are interested in it.
The Young Leaders are also happy to announce that Carla Potter, of Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP, is joining the Co-Chairs of the subcommittee and will focus on Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, and Myriam Mossi is joining as Director of Events.
