Asset Finance Lawyer

  • As part of our asset finance practice, you will provide advice to clients in relation to all major types of financing for big ticket assets including Aircraft; Maritime; Rail; Infrastructure, and Defence Assets.
  • You will work as part of a team in helping to structure and implement innovative products combining different sources of financing, including secured lending, tax and operating leasing, export credit finance, PPP/PFI and Islamic finance.
  • You will also work with other areas of the firm on deals in the broader asset finance and transportation sectors (including capital markets, M&A, restructuring, repossession and disputes).
  • Although preferred, previous experience in asset finance is not essential.
  • There is much interaction between the London team and teams based in our international offices. As a result, fluency in other languages would be a plus, although this is not essential for the role.
