Airfinance Journal's Legal Survey has placed the firm's Global Asset Finance Group first for the eighth consecutive year since the survey was launched.

The survey recognises the most active firms in the aviation sector based on deals completed in a dozen categories. In addition to Overall Winner, Clifford Chance won the survey's inaugural Legal Transaction of the Year award for its involvement in Turkish Airlines' Balthazar insurance-backed financing of 5 Airbus A321neo aircraft. The transaction represented another first in the aviation industry space. Clifford Chance also captured first place in several categories, including: Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Guaranteed financing, Commercial Loan and Operating Leases. Additionally the survey recognised Pete Buckley, Senior Associate, as a Rising Star. Pete is part of Clifford Chance's Global Asset Finance Group and advises a wide range of clients across the aviation sector, including financiers, arrangers, insurance companies, manufacturers, export credit agencies, leasing companies and operators.

This achievement is the result of the dedication and quality of our sector specialist team of lawyers, the firm's cross-practice capabilities, global network and having the opportunity to work with market-leading client institutions on ground-breaking deals.
