It is instrumental in securing the payment of debts and contract compliance; standing guarantee; serving as vehicle for securitization; implementing transactions arising from the application of the financial entities law; developing real estate business; restructuring liabilities, and the like. In such cases, trusts exhibit significant economic and practical advantages over traditional pledge and mortgage agreements.In the subject of securitization, we enjoy a sound track record, both from an academic and from a practical viewpoint, a member of the firm being a renowned international speaker and promoter of the practice.
