Ireland is a global hub for aircraft leasing and financing, attracting the world’s top industry players. Working with these organisations gives us unrivalled insight into this dynamic sector. This means we never lose sight of the bigger commercial picture for our clients.
Our award-winning advice on aviation financing transactions ranges from cross-border structuring and regulation to alternative funding and joint ventures. We also advise on contentious issues such as bankruptcy and insolvency.
Along with leading local and international lessors and financiers, we also work closely with credit agencies and government bodies.
