Restructuring and insolvency Tier 5
Focused almost exclusively on restructuring work within the aviation sector, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP continues to pick up a significant and growing amount of mandates from banks and lessors in distressed situations on the commercial airline front, as well as for owners in the private jet space. Praised for his 'ability to think-outside-the-box', Eugene Yeung has galvanised the team since his arrival from Eversheds Sutherland in 2018 and along with overarching asset finance team head Paul Jebely, benefits from the ability to advise on US law, therefore adding a degree of flexibility and optionality to clients in the sector regarding Chapter 11 protection.
‘The team provides flexible and practical solutions.’
‘The team is responsive, customer-focused, and liaises extremely well with all stakeholders. The quality of work is first class and I would recommend them to any aircraft lessor.’
‘Eugene Yeung is able to think outside-of-the-box.’

Regularly picking up commercial aviation financing work from lessors and banks on Asia-related matters, as well as on deals in as far afield as Africa and the Middle East, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP's 'commercial and practical' four-strong team adds particular value to clients on complex, often highly structured deals. New York and UK law-qualified team head Paul Jebely is well-placed to advise on debt financing structures governed under UK and US law. As well as his investor/lender side commercial aviation finance practice, Jebely is also noted for his work on behalf of high-net-worth-individuals in the private aviation market. Combining aviation and restructuring expertise, Eugene Yeung 's arrival in 2018 from Eversheds Sutherland appears particularly prescient now, in light of the huge economic pressures placed on the aviation sector in the wake of the Covid pandemic. The team is also able to tap into the resources of a significant global network, that includes highly rated practitioners based in London and the US.
‘I really appreciate their professionalism, creativity, and excellence in drawing up complex contracts.’
‘The team provides commercial and practical advice.’
‘Regarding the last contract that they prepared for my company: this is the first time in my life that I get compliments from my customers regarding the quality and clarity of a contract! An excellent team!’
‘The responsive Paul Jebely is a thought leader, not a follower.’
