Jensen said New York continues to be a hub for central players in aviation investment. Register “Even when we would do a capital markets deal for American Airlines, where the team is built in Texas, it’s still a New York-run deal,” said Jensen.

At Milbank, all of the lawyers advised financial institutions, investors and aircraft companies on aircraft financing, acquisition and leasing, according to Jensen. David Berkery of Dublin-based A&L Goodbody and Niels Jensen of Milbank will co-lead the practice, along with two associates joining from Milbank. Before moving to A&L Goodbody, Berkery spent five years at Milbank with the rest of the team.

Vinson & Elkins has grown its New York ranks over the past year with the addition of M&A and private equity partner Gabriel Silva as well as tax partner Ron Nardini. Jensen said the team decided to move to Vinson & Elkins because the firm allowed them to make the jump together and continue building out their practice.
