Ince & Co France SCP

International finance structuring is an area of particular expertise for Ince & Co France SCP , which also offers a well-rounded skillset to commercial and specialist operators alike. While instructions from lessees constitute the majority of the firm's recent caseload, the team is also adept at acting for lessors. Laurence Hanley directs the practice, with key support coming from the recently promoted Aymeric de Tapol. Recent standout mandates include advising Air France both on the financing of a B737-800 aircraft via a conditional sale and on the novation of nine lease agreements to its new subsidiary Joon, as well as several instructions regarding Japanese operating leases. Wijet and HOP! also feature on the client list. Andrew Charlier relocated to the firm's Monaco office.
