Pryor Cashman has added partner Anthony Schouten (pictured) to the firm’s investment management group.
Based in New York, Schouten (pictured) maintains an integrated corporate practice with a focus on structured finance and derivatives. He joins the firm from Winston & Strawn, where he was a partner.
“We are committed to providing the highest quality, end-to-end service for our clients, and Anthony’s unique skillset perfectly complements our current offerings and builds upon the talents of our team. He is highly respected in the field and we are thrilled to welcome him to the firm,” says Ronald H Shechtman, Pryor Cashman’s managing partner.
Schouten represents borrowers, investors and major investment banks in structured credit transactions, including collateralised loan obligations (CLOs). Schouten also assists banks, funds and corporate end users in swap documentation, including ISDA master agreements, credit support agreements and related account control agreements, interest rate swaps and equity derivatives.
Among his clients are major investment and commercial banks, including Macquarie Group and US Bank, leading asset managers, CLO investors and operating companies.
“Pryor Cashman’s entrepreneurial spirit, collective expertise and value-driven pricing model provide the ideal platform for me and my clients. I am excited to join this very unique firm that is recognised for providing superior client service on all levels. The firm has a stellar reputation and continues to punch above its weight despite significant competition,” says Schouten.
Schouten provides legal counsel to the New York City Energy Efficiency Corporation (NYCEEC), a non-profit financial services firm that delivers innovative financing solutions and technical support for clean energy building projects in New York City.
