Aviation and Asset Finance

FDO

The Flynn O’Driscoll Aviation and Asset Finance Team was founded by Managing Partner Patrick Flynn over sixteen years ago, and now headed up by Partner James Duggan, has successfully developed very strong links across the Aviation and Transportation sectors, both internationally and domestically.

We have acted as lead transaction counsel and as Irish counsel to international law firms on a full range of financing structures including international cross-border aircraft purchase, sale lease and finance transactions and, through this, have developed strong working relationships with law firms with whom we have worked together and against in many jurisdictions.
