Led by their Frankfurt based partner Julian Fischer, international law firm Hogan Lovells has advised Nord/LB on a conclusion of an agreement on selling ship loans totaling $1.5 billion.

Provided that certain conditions are met, KKR Credit together with a state fund will acquire a portfolio of performing and non-performing loans for 100 ships of the bank's books. The deal is expected to be structured as a securitization and to close in the fourth quarter.

Julian Fischer has advised Nord/LB during their contract negotiations and due diligence. Dietmar Helms has advised the securitization and Heiko Gemmel has counseled the tax issues.

"Our team is very happy to support Nord/LB in this complex transaction, which marks their first scheduled step in reducing their loan portfolio", said Julian Fischer.
