Managing Partner, European Region at Sidley Austin LLP

Biography

GEORGE PETROW joined the firm as a partner in 1997, co-leads Sidley’s Global Finance practice and is a member of the firm’s Management and Executive Committees. Since 2012, George has been the Managing Partner of the European Region, based in London. Before coming to London, he was the Managing Partner of the New York office.

George’s securities and corporate finance practice emphasizes the securitization of commercial mortgage loans and related areas of capital markets and real estate finance. He has over 30 years of experience in commercial mortgage securitization, and was involved in many developments of the secondary market for commercial mortgage loans, including single asset securitizations of urban office loans in the early 1980s, the first successful Wall Street commercial mortgage conduit and the first commercial mortgage loan securitization using a shelf registration statement. More recently, George represented the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as it expanded the collateral eligible for its Term Asset-Backed Loan Facility (TALF) to include CMBS, which is credited as a key component in the revival of that market, and he continues to represent opportunistic purchasers of mortgage loans and securitized products, by means of both stock and asset acquisitions.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln (commonly referred to as Nebraska, UNL or NU) is a public research university located in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. The university was chartered by the legislature in 1869 as a land-grant university under the 1862 Morrill Act, two years after Nebraska's statehood into the United States. Around the turn of the 20th century, the university began to expand significantly, hiring professors from eastern schools to teach in the newly organized professional colleges while also producing groundbreaking research in agricultural sciences. The "Nebraska method" of ecological study developed here during this time, which pioneered grassland ecology and laid the foundation for research in theoretical ecology for the rest of the 20th century. The university is organized into eight colleges, located on two campuses in Lincoln with over 100 classroom buildings and research facilities.
