The Clayton Utz Structured Products Group offers depth of experience at the cutting edge of structured products. Working closely with leading issuers, we have developed the legal structures underpinning many of the most popular and tax-efficient products of recent years.
Our experience traces back to our involvement in the original documentation of instalment warrants and covers just about every structure since. We advise on everything from vanilla warrants and OTC derivatives, through to some of the most complex tailored structures with very specific capital protection, leverage and risk requirements, spanning the full spectrum of underlying asset classes.
We recently advised Macquarie Bank on MQ Gateway which was awarded Pacific Prospect's "Innovation of the Year 2007" Award.
