Dentons US LLP

New York, NY, USA

Stephen Kudenholdt is Dentons’ Head of Structured Finance and a member of the US Capital Markets practice. He is also a member of Dentons’ US Board, as well as the Firm’s Global Advisory Committee.

Stephen is recommended by The Legal 500 US as “truly one of the more well-known lawyers in the mortgage space.” His areas of practice include residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) and other asset-backed securities (ABS), primarily focusing on residential mortgage loan securitization as well as re-securitization transactions involving various classes of mortgage-backed securities. He represents issuers, underwriters, loan sellers and other entities in public offerings and private placements.

Ranked Band 1 by Chambers Global (2017) and Band 1 by Chambers USA (2017) for the eighth consecutive year, Stephen has been praised by clients as “really smart” and an “excellent lawyer with a lot of presence.” He has helped develop many transaction structures and formats that have become industry standards, including shifting interest subordination techniques. His recent transactional work includes representing both issuers and underwriters in the securitization of distressed assets by federal agencies, and also in the re-emerging private RMBS markets.

Stephen, who is described by Chambers USA as “one of the grandmasters of the industry,” is a member of the board of directors of the recently formed Structured Finance Industry Group (SFIG), and is actively involved in a number of SFIG committees and initiatives pertaining to residential mortgages and RMBS. He is also a frequent writer and public speaker on regulatory developments affecting securitizations.
