Michael’s practice focuses on transactional matters in the securitization and asset-based lending/leasing areas and on the development and modernization of wholesale and retail (consumer) lending/leasing programs for vehicle and equipment lessors, financiers, and suppliers. In the securitization area, Michael advises sellers, purchasers, liquidity lenders, credit enhancers (including foreign insurance companies), trustees, and rating agencies in connection with domestic and cross-border securitization transactions. He also acts for a number of Canadian finance and insurance companies in purchasing or selling lease portfolios and in establishing domestic and cross-border private securitization programs and bulk purchase programs. Michael regularly writes and speaks at conferences and seminars on securitizations, equipment and consumer leasing, and secured transactions. Michael is also involved in industry associations and legal professional organizations in Canada and the US, including as a member of CFLA’s Board of Directors and Legal Committee and as Chair of the Personal Property Security Law Subcommittee of the OBA.
