Simon is a partner at our Hong Kong office, specialising in aviation law and asset finance. He has advised airlines, financiers, lessors, business jet managers and MRO service providers on operating leases, wet leases, finance leases, mortgage loans, commercial aircraft fleet acquisition projects, engine and cabin equipment purchases, power-by-the-hour arrangements, MRO service agreements, sale and purchase of used aircraft and aircraft holding companies, business jet management arrangements, aviation joint ventures in mainland China, licensing arrangements and restructuring of tax leases.

He recently acted for a fastest growing airline and the low cost carrier in mainland China, in negotiating aircraft operating lease agreements and an aircraft purchase agreement for 30 new aircraft. He also advised its overseas joint venture airline in the leasing of its very first aircraft (a Boeing 737-800 aircraft) from an international lessor.

Simon acts for two of the most active aircraft lessors in China in cross-border aircraft leasing and financing transactions. These transactions involved complex negotiations when looking at it from a commercial, engineering and legal perspective. On the business jet side, Simon acts for many operators and aircraft owners in the region.
