Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP

New York, NY, USA

Jon Kibbe is a founding partner of Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP, a firm with offices in New York, London and Washington D.C. He is a recognized authority on evolving legal issues in the global secondary loan market and his transactional practice concentrates on complex credit structures and the allocation of credit risk in the fixed income markets. He represents trade associations, industry groups, investment banks, hedge funds, broker dealers and other financial institutions that transact in the bank loan, high-yield debt and credit derivatives markets.  

He regularly advises clients participating in the market for troubled and non-performing financial assets and claims, providing transactional, compliance and regulatory guidance to clients that originate, restructure and trade commercial and industrial bank loans, distressed bonds, portfolios of real estate loans, claims against defaulted obligors arising from terminated derivative transactions, litigation claims and other related obligations. He has helped clients establish “peer-to-peer” electronic lending platforms, build trading capacity in the secondary loan market, support strategic trading programs and develop firm-wide compliance and best-practice initiatives.

Mr. Kibbe also counsels clients engaged in event-driven acquisitions, debt restructurings and innovative financing transactions. He has helped develop and engineer new financial instruments, including the loan credit default swap (LCDS), and new applications of securitization structures, including a vehicle formed to purchase and restructure distressed bank loans.
