Our global Aviation and Marine specialists deliver practical, commercial and responsive solutions to clients in the aviation and marine markets.

With many years’ experience advising on structures and complex transactions around the globe, our multi-jurisdictional approach brings together sector-leading legal, corporate administration, and regulatory practices.

With a global footprint crossing European, Asian and Caribbean time zones, we advise clients with aviation and shipping assets on cross-border financing, trading transactions and establishing owner vehicles, providing tailored solutions for owners, investors, operators, lessors and lessees.

We provide corporate administration and governance services to structures relating to the ownership of all types of aircraft and ships, including via the use of special purpose vehicles. We offer advice and services related to structuring and financing options, issues arising in aircraft vessel registration and certification, and associated employment and potential dispute matters.

Our team has considerable experience advising in respect of the acquisition, lease and sale of aircraft and vessels, as well as aircraft registration, aircraft certification and security registration on the Cayman and Guernsey aircraft registries. We can also field questions in Cayman on matters concerning the Cape Town Convention.

We advise both lenders and borrowers on all aspects of aircraft and shipping financing, and have extensive experience of the security granted in relation to such financing. This includes all aspects of debt and structured finance, security enforcement, restructuring and insolvency.

Ogier’s aviation and marine services complement our extensive private wealth offering, which includes estate planning, the establishment of private wealth structures, property, immigration and relocation services.

Using Ogier Global's industry-leading client service portal, Ogier Connect, we can offer clients secure real-time access to a personal library of statutory documents including registers of ownership and more.

Responsiveness and a strong awareness of the issues affecting the sector globally underpin our client offering, which draws on the regulatory, ESG and sustainable investment expertise across our jurisdictions. Whether it's a commercial aircraft, mega-yacht or smaller vessel, our dedicated global team offers responsive, to the point advice.
