Asset management

An enviable record of asset finance delivery.

Whatever your requirements in the asset finance world, you can trust your Freshfields team to get the job done. We advise all the major players in the aviation, rail and shipping sectors and we’ve built up an enviable record of delivery.

Against a volatile industry backdrop, we support our aviation clients with finance leases, operating leases, multi-aircraft facilities, Islamic finance, tax-driven and off-balance-sheet structures, export credit-supported financing, and novel capital markets transactions.

Our worldwide rail practice advises a range of industry participants including public sector parties, lessors, infrastructure operators, passenger and freight operators, financiers and manufacturers.

We regularly handle landmark transactions. We continue to be prominent in rolling stock procurement and financing, passenger franchising/concessioning, metro and light rail, commercial, regulatory, property, infrastructure, PPP/PFI, and track access.

We also advise our clients on other big-ticket asset transactions including ship restructurings, tax-based leasing, oil storage, liquefied natural gas terminals and oil rigs.
