Justin Benson - White & Case LLP

Within: Asset finance and leasing

Led by the 'very approachable and thorough' Justin Benson, White & Case LLP 's three-partner team is best known for its expertise at handling new money and refinancing matters within the aviation and shipping sectors, where it benefits in particular from the ability to implement financing structures incorporating UK and US-law governed debt structures. In a deal which showcased the team's ability to work seamlessly with complementary practice areas, Benson recently worked alongside restructuring practitioners on behalf of Kenya Airways on its $2bn financial restructuring. Benson also worked alongside private equity lawyers at the firm on Rhône Capital's $150m investment in global aviation company VistaJet. As well as her considerable aviation sector experience, Alison Weal also regularly handles rail and shipping finance matters including her recent high-profile work for United Arab Shipping Company on its merger with Hapag-Lloyd. Adrian Beasley is 'excellent at communicating complex issues', particularly as it relates to finance activity in the aviation sector. Other clients include Deutsche Bank, Euler Hermes, Nordea Bank and UK Export Finance.
