Profile

Matthew Frankle focuses his practice on secured lending and equity derivative transactions. The lending transactions are syndicated or bilateral loans generally secured by concentrated listed stock positions or hedge fund interests. The equity derivative transactions are often variable delivery forward or collar / loan financing transactions.

In addition, Matthew advises major financial institutions on structured products involving proprietary indices.

Moreover, as the market for cryptocurrency and digital assets has expanded, Matthew consults on lending transactions where cryptocurrency is used as collateral.

Matthew began his career as a securities / capital markets attorney at Sullivan & Cromwell and later practiced at several major investment banking institutions. Prior to joining Haynes and Boone, Matthew was a partner in Greenberg Traurig’s finance department in New York.
