Traditionally, the need for asset and structured finance transactions is driven by market and regulatory circumstances at the time. For example, Basel III is set to influence the business models of asset-based financiers, both regulated and unregulated.
Our team offers over 30 years’ experience of structuring solutions and legal knowledge to adapt to new scenarios and business needs. We have advised on a broad range of transactions including finance and operating leases, leveraged leases, cross-border leases and complex tax based structures.
Members of our team have acted for arrangers, lessees (both government and private), lessors, financiers and sponsors and have been closely involved in the planning, structuring and documentation of these transactions. Assets financed include power stations, aircraft, rolling stock, transmission wires, rail track, software, real estate, research and development assets and shares.
Our finance specialists work closely with our tax team who assist in all aspects of these transactions.
