The ﬁrm is recommended for this practice area in AsiaLaw Proﬁles for the years 2014 – 2018 and 2021. AsiaLaw Profiles 2018 quoted a client as saying: “The aviation finance team in Malaysia is top rate … I trust them to provide sound advice on the most complicated of matters.”
Being one of the few Malaysian ﬁrms with an aviation related law practice, we take pride in counting several major international ﬁnancial institutions specialising in aircraft leasing among our clients. The bulk of our work is in acting as Malaysian counsel to major airlines, aircraft lessors, banks, collateral agents and security trustees in relation to the acquisition, disposal, lease, ﬁnancing and securitisation of aircraft. Having said that, we do also act for Malaysian corporations in connection with the purchase of aircraft. Our experience over the years has ensured that we have the capacity to navigate the labyrinth of legislation and conventions/treaties together with the complex and multiple documents usually involved in transactions relating to aviation.
