Acquiring and selling aircraft

The prospective purchaser of a Gulf Stream G550 or Citation VII often thinks that this is just a more expensive (but even more exciting) variation on the purchase of their Aston Martin DB9.

However, the legal ramifications of purchasing an aircraft are complex, often confusing and certainly far reaching. Expert legal advice is necessary from the beginning of the process to completion (or in some cases abortion) of the purchase.

Our team can advise on the financing and security documentation relevant to the purchase of the aircraft and negotiate with lenders on the purchaser’s behalf. 

We also assist in all aspects of the sale of aircraft including drafting and negotiating sale agreements, dealing with existing lenders and security documentation. 

We also advise on the registration process and will deal with the International Registry in Dublin and other relevant registries.
