The team counts major shipping, offshore companies, shipyards and insurers among its clients as well as energy service companies and oil and gas businesses. Saugata Mukherjee has expertise in structured and asset finance in the shipping and aviation sectors and led advice to the China Development Bank on the financing for the building of six LNG carriers in respect of a joint venture between Teekay LNG Partners and China LNG Shipping. Martin Green and Iain Young, who founded the firm's practice in Singapore, are seasoned asset finance practitioners and of counsel Michelle Runagall-Orlić, who has a focus on cross-border aviation financing, acquisition and leasing transactions, is also a name to note. The team advised BW LPG on a $150m term loan to refinance its existing revolving credit facility, which was raised from a number of banks including ING Bank and Development Bank of Japan. Other work includes assisting with the acquisition finance for a floating storage and regasification unit, where the group worked with colleagues in the firm's London and Hong Kong offices.

  • Companies should plan now to minimise their pension protection levy

    The amount that pension schemes have to pay to the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) for the year 2006/07 may have increased by as much as five times the previous year's levy. Employers who ultimately bear the cost of many pension schemes will need to make plans now to ensure the levy payable for the year 2008/09 is kept to a minimum.
