Trustee and Agency Services

A&L Goodbody advises numerous leading trustee and agency companies in respect of both special purpose companies and regulated investment funds. We commonly advise on all agency roles including trustee, paying agent, account bank/custodian, portfolio administrator and cash manager, on a wide range of transactions. We are familiar with and have acted for corporate trust and agency clients on various products, including stand-alone bond and MTN programmes, hybrid capital issues, securitisations, repack programmes, secured lending and all other forms of asset-backed and structured finance.

Our team also advises on all post-issue matters such as restructurings and refinancing's, liability management and noteholder meetings, default and enforcement scenarios and generally on the exercise of trustee powers, duties and discretions. We work closely with our Restructuring & Insolvency colleagues on post-issue matters and on default and enforcement scenarios.
