James Fisher focuses his practice on advising corporate trust and agency clients across a broad spectrum of cross-border and domestic transactions. These transactions range from residential mortgage-backed and commercial mortgage-backed securities and other securitisations, CDOs, CLOs, medium-term note and master trust programs, and debt capital markets issuances to repackagings, derivatives, regulatory-driven insurance-linked securities, SIVs, and other structured products.
James advises corporate trust and agency institutions in all their capacities, including as note trustee, security trustee, cash manager, custodian, paying agent, and collateral administrator across the lifecycle of the transaction, with extensive experience in post-closing matters such as restructurings, defaults, remediations, bondholder meetings, and exercises of discretion.
Before joining Alston & Bird, James practiced at a Global Top 50 firm. He also gained broad in-house industry experience while seconded with four leading global banks and a major international investment manager over the course of his career.
