Blake Lapthorn's Aircraft Finance team receives recognition in leading aviation sector publication Airfinance Journal

Posted on
The firm's Aircraft Finance team has for the second year running been recognised by the aviation finance industry's leading publication, Airfinance Journal, in its 2012 legal survey as one of the top five law firms for this practice area together with four large international firms in the category 'Best Overall Firm'.

The team was also ranked in the top five for the following categories:

  • Fairest Fees
  • Deals Done Quickly
  • Best Industry Knowledge
  • After Deal Support
  • Most Commercially Aware
  • Most Innovative Client Entertainment

The firm's Aircraft Finance team and Aviation group leader, Ben Graham-Evans, said: "We are delighted to once again receive such high recognition in this leading publication. Having a respected and successful aircraft finance practice outside of the mainstream City choices in the UK, ensures that Blake Lapthorn remains in a good position to develop further in this area and win more quality work. Unlike our competitors we don't have offices overseas so we were pleased to be ranked alongside the big international firms once again. This is likely a reflection of the importance we place on the development and maintenance of legal relationships around the globe enabling us to do cross-border work at a level so as to compete with firms with overseas offices."
