We have extensive experience with other assets, financing structures and across all sectors of the asset finance industry. Whatever we are handling, our lawyers have the breadth and depth of experience to help clients find the most commercially beneficial way to structure a deal.
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.
Our expertise in domestic and cross-border asset financings covers everything from transportation across film and infrastructure projects to the renewables energy sector (eg jack-up vessels).
