Justin Benson - White & Case LLP

Within: Transport finance & leasing

Led by the 'very accomplished' Justin Benson, White & Case LLP's three-partner team's core focus remains within the aviation sector, where it effectively services a balanced mix of banks and lessors. Aided by practitioners in key jurisdictions, including the US (strategically important due to the prevalence of financing structures incorporating UK and US-law governed debt), Japan (of particular benefit in relation to the implementation of JOLCO structures) and Hong Kong/Beijing (key strategic outposts in light of the rise of the Chinese lessor market), the team excels in multi-jurisdictional mandates. In a deal which involved input from the firm's US and Asian offices, Benson recently acted for Vermillion in connection with a large-scale $950m secured financing for the refinancing of a portfolio of 40 aircraft. Adrian Beasley is also a very experienced practitioner on the aviation front and has particularly strong ties with numerous airlines.
