Equipment Finance

Practice Overview

Advising clients who lease equipment or engage in loan transactions secured by equipment became a core area of strength for MPS Law when our 2022 acquisition of Kaplan Saunders Valente & Beninati LLP brought in a number of attorneys experienced in equipment financing and portfolio transfer transactions. Today, our team assists suppliers, financiers, operating lessors, and users of equipment in the acquisition, financing, leasing, management, and disposition of equipment and related contract rights.

We serve a broad range of clients, from multinational corporations to small equipment leasing and managing companies, as well as banks and other lenders involved in secured lending transactions (including in connection with highly leveraged transactions) where equipment is a material part of the collateral. Of particular note is our work on transactions involving railcars and railroad-related equipment, which has earned select team members repeated invitations to speak on matters relating to railroad transactions, secured lending, and equipment financing.

Areas in which we can provide assistance to clients involved in equipment financing include:

  • Secured lending transactions
  • Financing
  • Leasing
  • Portfolio transfers
  • Management
  • Disposition
  • Equipment recovery
