Attorney Dylan Potter joined Vedder Price as a partner in its Global Transportation Finance group at the firm’s London office.
Potter advises on a broad range of financing, leasing, capital markets and fund products involving commercial and corporate aviation, shipping, satellites, utilities and industrial equipment. He represents lenders, export credit agencies, operating lessors, lessees and equity investors in these sectors.
“I am excited to join Vedder Price as a partner in its market leading transportation finance practice,” Potter said. “I look forward to serving my clients alongside my new colleagues and helping grow our aviation, maritime and equipment finance practices.”
Potter joined from the Structured & Asset Finance practice in Allen & Overy’s London office. He has been involved in many innovative and award-winning transactions, including the first export credit supported Sukuk, which remains the largest ECA supported capital markets offering in the aviation sector, as well as large scale satellite financings, portfolio and company acquisitions and divestments involving multiple aircraft and vessels, distressed debt transactions, restructurings and structured, tax-based and cross-border leasing.
“Dylan is a great fit for our London transportation finance practice,” said Dean N. Gerber, Vedder Price board of directors member, executive committee vice chair and chair of the firm’s Global Transportation Finance team. “His experience further enhances our capabilities to serve our clients on an international level and we look forward to what he offers to our growing client base.”
The London office also added solicitors Ryan Cheung and Georgia Harris to the Global Transportation Finance group.
