Benefiting from an 'unquestionably deep sector knowledge, coupled with a down-to-earth and practical approach',¬†Norton Rose Fulbright's 11-partner team has the critical mass to handle a tremendous volume and range of mandates across all transportation asset classes. Aided by offices in key strategic locations, including Singapore and Greece, the firm remains a 'powerhouse'¬†in the maritime sector, where the 'brilliant'¬†Simon Hartley¬†has an excellent practice; particularly within the cruise ship space (for both owners and lenders) as exemplified by his recent work for Soci√©t√© G√©n√©rale on the ‚ā¨2.6bn French ECA-supported receivable purchase and post-delivery financings to acquire three cruise vessels for MSC Cruises. Team head¬†Harry Theochari¬†has vast knowledge and experience of financings within the maritime sector (he has been particularly focused of late on acting for new fund entrants into the market), and¬†Eleanor Martin¬†excels at work in the offshore sector.¬†Duncan Batchelor¬†and¬†Simon Chamberlain¬†are two of the primary practitioners within the aviation finance sub-group, which is noted for its 'business-oriented approach and knowledge of market standards'. On the rail front,¬†Tom Johnson¬†is a 'very¬†fine practitioner' whose broad client base encompasses train operating companies, government entities, financiers and rolling stock owning companies, while the team recently secure a major boost with the hire of¬†highly rated rail finance specialist Simon Gwynne¬†from Hogan Lovells International LLP. At an associate level,¬†Will Alete¬†and the 'business-oriented'¬†James Collins¬†are particularly noteworthy.
