Asset Finance lawyers

As a bank, owner, export credit agency, lessee, lessor, operator or portfolio manager, you face many challenges in financing assets. These challenges could include increased regulation impacting on funding availability, financial distress caused by global economic conditions and asset-specific considerations such as tax and government licensing.

Our team has expertise across the full range of debt and leasing products, including all major asset classes in various jurisdictions, and can help you deal with the unique challenges you face as a party to an asset-financing transaction.

We advise clients in shipping and offshore marine, aviation, renewables and rail financing and all associated procurement, leasing and operating arrangements.

Services we offer include: syndicated and bilateral bank facilities; capital markets financing; funds formation and investments; equity financing, joint venture and partnership formation; finance, operating and tax-based leasing; concession-based and project financings; sales and purchases; operational management agreements.

In short, whatever the product or asset, you can expect a service tailored to your needs.
