Abstract

Lawyers, increasingly, are scrutinized as to their public responsibility when companies fail, particularly where the lawyer's involvement with the failed company is nontraditional and, arguably, intertwined with the failure. One of the least traditional roles of lawyers today is as counsel in structured finance transactions. This article focuses on the public responsibility of lawyers involved in these transactions.
