Airfinance Journal ranks Guy Espitalier-Noel as a rising star in aviation finance

Guy Espitalier-Noel, a senior associate in Stephenson Harwood’s aviation finance practice, has been recognised as a rising star by leading industry publication, Airfinance Journal, in their 2016 Guide to Aviation Lawyers.

Guy has worked in both private practice and in-house roles, and he has a wealth of experience advising clients on a variety of often complex, cross-border transactions. He acts for industry-leading aviation finance banks, lessors and airlines on transactions including operating lease financings (including subordinated debt and Shari’ah-compliant financings and leases), finance leases, aircraft purchases and disposals, portfolio transactions, corporate jet financings, manufacturer contracts and PDP financings.

“Guy is a first rate aviation finance lawyer and a key member of our team; I am particularly pleased that he has received this prestigious recommendation,” said Richard Parsons, partner and head of aviation finance at Stephenson Harwood. “His robust and commercial approach, coupled with his strong industry knowledge, make him a trusted adviser. The accolade further confirms Stephenson Harwood’s aviation finance team’s reputation for being one of the foremost legal aviation finance practices.”

Airfinance Journal is widely recognised as the leading publication covering the aviation finance and leasing market, and its rankings and awards are coveted accolades.

Guy is part of the award winning asset finance team at Stephenson Harwood. In the last year the team has won the Airfinance Journal award for Export Credit Deal of the Year, and Leasing Life’s Leasing Law Firm of the Year award.
