The global transportation finance team of Vedder Price is one of the largest, most experienced and best recognised transportation finance practices in the world. Our clients come from a broad spectrum of industries, and we are involved in the financing of an extensive range of transactions for lessees and lessors, borrowers and lenders, private and public companies, manufacturers, underwriters and governmental agencies in the US and abroad. Our global transportation finance team’s reputation begins with its worldwide prominence in aviation finance. However, our practice extends well beyond commercial aviation, and we are considered industry leaders in many other types of transportation financing, including rail, marine and other transportation assets, healthcare, energy, computer software/hardware, and manufacturing/construction equipment. Our maritime practice group is integral to the global transportation finance team and represents nearly all segments of the maritime industry throughout the world, delivering advice under US and English law, with extensive familiarity with the legal regimes of the leading open registries. Attorneys in the maritime practice group have substantial experience in all types of finance transactions involving maritime and offshore assets of every type. Members of our team have advised open registries and have drafted legislation and regulatory provisions to facilitate the financing and ownership of vessels adopted in several jurisdictions.
