Profile

Matthew Harvey

Description

Clients go to Matthew Harvey – one of the most experienced asset finance lawyers in London – to untangle the jargon. ‘We cut through the arcane terminology and explain the transaction in clear English,’ he says. He has particular expertise in advising on equipment leasing, as well as the financing of corporate aircraft. Harvey joined Gowling in 2016 after over 21 years at Dentons.

For first-time buyers, he offers some advice. ‘Make sure you have good specialist advisers, both legal and technical, [and that they] work together. There’s no point agreeing a technical detail with a manufacturer if it does not find its way into the aircraft purchase agreement.’
