Nathan spent nearly four years as an associate at the world’s second-largest law firm, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP (FBD), in its Frankfurt and London offices. While at FBD, Nathan completely redrafted the firm’s standard form contracts for both cross-border real estate lending and cross-border, ECB-eligible, loan and lease agreement securitization, including “CDO Squared.”
Nathan was also involved in the drafting and negotiation of the contracts used by German federal and state finance ministries to bail out German banks that had invested in U.S. sub-prime Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities, representing both the finance ministries and the banks, depending upon the transaction.
Nathan drafted and negotiated factoring contracts and amendments to problematic securitization and derivatives contracts, including an amendment to a $70 billion custom derivatives contract which, without the amendment, could have resulted in the failure of two of the largest banks in the world.
