About Shan A. Haider

Shan Haider had a front-row seat to the financial crisis. He continues to use that experience representing parties including hedge funds and mortgage companies in buying, selling and financing pools of mortgages and related assets. Combining a creative approach with an attention to detail, Shan serves as a trusted ally to his clients, finding the solutions they need to execute their investment strategies.

Wisdom from the crisis, applied to the present

Shan works with clients on a variety of structured finance related transactions, with an emphasis on mortgage transactions. Some of his work draws on his experience as a judicial law clerk for the Delaware Bankruptcy Court at the height of the financial crisis. It gave him invaluable insights into the residential mortgage sector as well as issues related to insolvency. Shan uses that knowledge in analyzing opportunities in structured finance for his clients. Among other things, he helps them unlock or preserve value in litigation and distress situations.

For Shan, solving problems is second nature. He excels at project management, where he takes a proactive approach in spotting issues before they become roadblocks. Clients appreciate that he provides actionable advice that is straightforward to implement. Above all else, Shan makes sure his transactions both close smoothly and provide what his clients need to operate and grow their businesses.
