Structured Finance & Leasing

 

Our banking and finance team provides commercial and pragmatic solutions for structured finance and leasing.

We advise on:

  • lease finance transactions, including operating and finance lease structures;
  • debt finance structures for assets, where the debt is syndicated or provided under a bilateral facility;
  • Personal Property Securities Act (PPSA); and
  • transactions involving a diverse range of assets, including ships, aircraft, rolling stock, mining assets and vehicles.

The team is supported by the firm’s dispute resolution and litigation practice, which has considerable experience in enforcement and recovery processes.
