Transport finance & leasing

Within: Transport finance & leasing

Although it is active in other asset classes, Dentons' five-partner practice is particularly accomplished at handling financings and leasing transactions for lessors, airlines, manufacturers and lenders in the aviation sector. An enviable roster of airlines, including Emirates and Qatar Airways, continue to provide a significant volume of instructions to the team, with the 'excellent' Serge Sergiou recently advising the former on its ECA-supported financings of two A380s - the first ECA financing for Airbus Aircraft since 2016. Nick Chandler heads the team, which also includes the 'vastly experienced' Greg Kahn and Sarah Dyke, who is 'very knowledgeable in the corporate jet sector'.
