I handle complex, highly structured asset finance and corporate transactions on behalf of financial institutions, leasing companies, operators, arrangers and investors. I'm particularly focused on aircraft and other transportation assets.
Over the years I've helped clients close commercial debt financings, operating leases, structured tax-based financings, acquisition financings, equity/debt funds, export-credit deals, asset portfolio sales and purchases, joint ventures, Islamic financings, re-packs, secondary market debt trades, as well as structure award-winning, first-of-kind deals and establish new investment platforms. I've also advised on repossession, work-out and restructuring scenarios. I enjoy getting to know my clients and working to achieve the best possible commercial outcome for them.
Bird & Bird's collaborative, friendly culture means we operate effectively as a global team across our international network. We are able to handle complex global deals, bringing together specialist advice when needed including regulatory, corporate, tax, derivatives, insolvency and dispute resolution.
Recently I've been involved in Bird & Bird's initiative to use technology to transform the way legal services are delivered. The team use online transaction management platforms, document automation, and we leverage the latest legal AI. This drives transaction efficiencies, allowing our lawyers to focus on analysis and adding value.
