  • Thacher Proffitt & Wood LLP was an American law firm headquartered in New York City. At its peak, the firm was made up of approximately 365 attorneys with offices in New York City; Washington, D.C.; Mexico City; White Plains, New York; and Summit, New Jersey. The firm traces its founding back to 1848, when Benjamin Franklin Butler opened a legal practice with his son, William Allen Butler, at 29 Wall Street in New York City. Thacher Proffitt was a market leader in the mortgage-backed securities market, and in fact was instrumental in the creation of the residential MBS and commercial MBS markets. The firm so controlled the market that the standard documentation used by mortgage traders was known as "Thacher docs" and "TP&W forms." This flagship practice was adversely impacted by the downturn in the capital markets in 2008, as well as the collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, first leading Thacher Proffitt to trim its headcount, and ultimately dissolve. The firm also had highly regarded real estate, litigation, corporate, tax and derivatives practices. The firm had offices in the World Trade Center through the September 11 attacks.
