Lecturer in Law
Edwin Smith is co-chair of Morgan Lewis' Financial Services Area. Since joining the firm in 1974, he has concentrated his practice in general corporate and commercial law, debt financings, structured financings, workouts, bankruptcies, and international transactions. Having actively participated in the drafting of a number of the recent revisions to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), Chambers USA, 2005 notes he “probably knows as much about UCC as anybody in the country.” Prior to being named a partner in 1981, Mr. Smith spent three and a half years in the firm’s London office, where he concentrated in international financing and commercial transactions. He co-teaches Transnational Lending and Trade Financing.
