Our focus

We advise on domestic and cross-border asset financings including all types of debt, lease (tax and non-tax-based, finance as well as operate leases) and capital markets driven products, securitisations, receivables financings, vendor programmes and retail finance. Our lawyers help clients buy and sell leasing companies and portfolios and structure regional and global leasing business networks. They also advise on aircraft repossessions, airline and ship restructurings and insolvencies.

We act for banks, financiers, airlines, lessors, manufacturers, captive finance companies, operators, borrowers, lessees, export credit agencies and governmental and international organisations.
