Miles & Stockbridge banking and finance lawyers have significantly strong experience in equipment leasing and finance. We represent operating lessors; financial institutions acting as an owner/lessor, seller or trustee; and corporate and municipal clients as lessees in all types of equipment transactions. We also work with operating lessor and financial institution clients to establish lease-origination joint venture programs in which each entity draws on the other's financial and operational experience and leverages such strengths to broaden and diversify its lease portfolio.
Our lawyers regularly handle complex, multimillion-dollar financings (including syndicated transactions involving multiple lenders and equipment located in multiple jurisdictions) and middle-market transactions with single lenders/lessors and borrowers/lessees.
Railroad equipment finance is an area of particular strength, as our lawyers annually close over $100 million in the aggregate of sales and purchases of large single investor and leveraged lease portfolios, as well as triple net, per diem, and full service financings that include true and finance leases of a wide range of railcar equipment.

We draw on the firm's full resources in tax, securities, banking, real estate, bankruptcy and corporate law to develop creative, cost-effective and comprehensive approaches to our client's equipment financing needs.
