Lorraine Massaro

Fax +1.212.536.3901
Ms. Massaro has been engaged in the practice of corporate and finance law since 1977. She has extensive transactional experience in a wide spectrum of sophisticated corporate finance matters, including cross-border transactions; securitizations and structured finance; joint ventures; strategic alliances; project finance in connection with energy production; solar project and REC financings, and other debt and equity financings in domestic and international, public and private markets.

Ms. Massaro worked with investment bank and financial institution clients during the initial creation of the securitization of private label mortgage loans, which devolved into the securitization of numerous other asset classes and structures in her practice. More recently Ms. Massaro has been heavily engaged in the work of NREL’s SAPC organization charged with the standardization of solar deal documents and related legal and structural issues intended to result in the widespread availability of securitization as a cost-effective financing technique for solar energy projects. She is also involved in the subcommittee formed by NREL intended to expedite the entry of commercial bank lenders and other funding sources to the solar energy area.

She regularly represents investment banks, commercial banks, issuers, venture capital investors, institutional lenders and borrowers, as well as public and private companies as general outside counsel, including in respect of governance, securities laws compliance, general corporate housekeeping, disclosure issues, financings and mergers and acquisitions.
