This article presents information on Shearman & Sterling's London head of securitisation Marke Raines who has resigned following four years at the firm. Raines joined Shearman in May 2000 from Allen & Overy to build the U.S. firm's London securitisation group from scratch. Many in the market were surprised at the move, given Shearman's lack of a securitisation tradition globally and the total absence of any pedigree in London at the time. It is understood that Raines, regarded as a brilliant technical lawyer, tendered his resignation last year, although his last day at Shearman is 31 March, 2005.
