Asset finance & leasing

Powered by:

Gateley Legal

Asset finance and leasing come with complex judgements about business needs, accounting and tax issues and a whole host of legal issues.

Against a dynamic regulatory background, we advise on all aspects of credit, asset finance and leasing, financial compliance, regulation and related litigation. And with a deep understanding of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rules we have particular expertise in title investigations and fraud recovery work often with cross-border issues.

We deliver end-to-end advice on everything from different credit agreements, regulatory compliance and FCA authorisations to the successful recovery of money and/ or assets; with both contentious and non-contentious asset finance and leasing work within a specialist single team.

Our core business is acting for clients in the asset finance sector, where the products we focus on span:

We have expertise in both hard and soft assets in many sectors including motor finance and IT equipment.

We have a strong reputation for advising and helping our clients manage defaults and, if necessary, litigating and recovering assets and funds.

We’re involved in title investigations and fraud cases, and we’re not shy about devising unusual solutions to get effective results and successful outcomes.

Who do we help?

We act for many different types of asset funders, including banks, specialist asset finance lenders and leasing companies. We also assist many of the firm’s corporate clients including housebuilders, retailers and football clubs with asset financing and leasing transactions.

The asset finance team at Gateley has a wide-ranging and high value customer base, and for good reason: it is excellent at what it does, and its members are hard-working, client-focused and possessed of excellent litigation skills. Definitely a team to turn to for difficult and high-value cases in the debt recovery/ asset finance sector.
