Herbert Smith Freehills
Aviation & Yachts
London, United Kingdom
A transport lawyer fascinated with aviation since childhood, WFW’s former global transport head Rex Rosales’ move to Herbert Smith Freehills indicated the firm’s growing strength in asset finance. Rosales’ Canadian heritage and four years in Paris with Clifford Chance helped him understand the ‘cultural implications’ of aviation law, giving a ‘sense, not just of the legal and business aspects of the aviation industry, but of how understanding cultural distinctions can help put issues and points in perspective, and help people to understand’.
He advises clients on acquisition, financing, leasing, operation, maintenance, trading, disposal and end-of-life scrapping.
