Transportation Equipment Acquisition and Leasing

The transportation industry is highly capital intensive.  Our Transportation Industry Team attorneys regularly assist our clients in the acquisition and lease financing of all types of transportation equipment—from vessels, trucks and aircraft to railcars and locomotives.  

Whether your organization requires a full service lease, a short term operating lease or a lease financing to free up your balance sheet, our attorneys understand the critical issues for lessors and lessees.
