New York, NY, USA

A counsel in the Corporate Department, Ryan D. McNaughton represents underwriters, issuers, lenders, borrowers, private equity firms and other financial institutions in a variety of structured and asset backed financings, including public and private secured and unsecured note offerings and credit facilities. In addition, he advises ABS investors and private equity firms on the structuring, diligence and execution of acquisitions of ABS issuers, potential ABS issuers and asset backed notes.


Prior to and during the credit crisis, Mr. McNaughton focused his practice primarily on traditional securitization asset classes, including RMBS, CMBS, trade receivables, automobile loan ABS and CLOs. Following the crisis, he has focused more extensively on the esoteric ABS market, including significant transactions in each of the following asset classes: whole business and other operating asset and royalty-backed securitizations; tax liens; PACE bonds; timeshare ABS; structured settlements; BDC lending (pre-securitization warehouse facilities); and wireless spectrum.

Other financing asset classes in which Mr. McNaughton has recently represented long-term clients of Paul, Weiss include data centers, alarm and home security receivables, non-performing mortgage loans, venture-capital loans, film and TV production loans and solar development loans. In addition, Mr. McNaughton has worked on numerous public and private bond financings for clients such as the FDIC, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the California Public Utilities Commission.

Mr. McNaughton is currently an Adjunct Professor at Cornell Law School, where he teaches a seminar on Secured Transactions. He is also an avid classical pianist.
