1 min read

In its Law Firm of the Year Awards, Global Transport Finance has named global law firm White & Case firm of the year in three different transportation infrastructure sectors. This is the first time in more than 20 years that a single law firm has received three of the four different transport infrastructure category awards.

Global Transport Finance named White & Case:

  • Airports Law Firm of the Year
  • Roads Law Firm of the Year
  • Seaports Law Firm of the Year

"The fact that we were awarded the top law firm in three of Global Transport Finance's four categories demonstrates the true depth and breadth of our global project development and finance practice," said Global Head of Project Development and Finance Art Scavone (New York). "We continue to be very grateful for the industry recognition we are receiving for the strong year we had in 2018."

The White & Case Asset Finance practice also won Global Transport Finance awards for aircraft financings in three regions:

  • AFIC Deal of the Year (Africa)
  • Aircraft Lessor Debt Deal of the Year (Asia)
  • JOLCO Deal of the Year (Latin America)

"The continued successful growth of our global aviation practice is reflected in these awards, both from a regional coverage perspective and in the broad range of financing methodology and structures that were utilized," said Global Head of Asset Finance Chris Frampton (New York). "We very much appreciate the recognition we are receiving for these transactions and, taken together with the awards we have received in the Airports, Roads and Seaports categories, believe that such recognition reflects well on the continued development of the Firm's practice in the transportation sector."

The awards will be formally presented at the 2018 Global Transport Finance Annual Gala Awards & Dinner in London on January 31.
