Within: Asset finance (including aviation and shipping finance)

Equally strong at handling aviation and shipping finance matters, Mayer Brown JSM’s ‘exceptional’ asset finance team benefits from ‘unrivalled industry and subject-matter knowledge’, and provides ‘highly commercial’ advice to banks, owners and leasing companies. Maggie Cheung has strong ties with lenders in the region (particularly PRC banks including Industrial and Commercial Bank of China) and regularly handles bilateral and syndicated financings in the shipping sector. Senior consultant Dean Young has vast experience in the market acting for banks and leasing companies, while Bill Amos has a focus on ship finance workouts; he is advising Chiyu Bank (a subsidiary of BOCHK) on the enforcement of its mortgage over “YONG FU”. The team was also recently bolstered, particularly on the PRC leasing side, by the arrival of the ‘excellent’ Conor Warde from Clyde & Co LLP in August 2017. On the aviation front, the ‘exceptionally detail-orientedRichard Stock is noted for his ‘excellent negotiation skills’ and has expertise across a range of cross-border commercial and financing activity for banks, lessors and airlines. Ashley Wong has strong connections with PRC lessors and airlines, including ICBC Financial Leasing and Cathay Pacific, and is regularly engaged in aircraft portfolio acquisitions and disposals. Stuart Miller handles cross-border commercial aircraft finance, leasing and corporate jet transactions, and is also increasingly active advising PRC aircraft lessors on their financing requirements for aircraft portfolios.
