Clifford Chance has been named "North American Law Firm of the Year" at the 2020 Securitization innovation in focus (SCI) Capital Relief Trades Awards for 2020. 

Full awards coverage can be found here.

In acknowledging the firm SCI offers, "The firm set itself the target of being the go-to practice for any bank contemplating CRT issuance in the US and, after 2020, it is hard to argue that it has not succeeded in this respect. It has a highly respected and experienced New York practice, headed by partners Gareth Old and David Felsenthal."

Felthensal says, "We are delighted and honoured to have won this award from SCI, which reflects the fact that Clifford Chance is able to bring the strength in depth and expertise we possess in CRT markets around the globe to the North American market."

SCI continues, "In short, few law practices possess the strength in depth across global CRT markets than Clifford Chance, but the fact that it has been the advisor to two-thirds of the banks active in the North American market means it has at the moment few significant rivals in this jurisdiction."
