Walkers Advises Pine Brook on Investment in Amedeo

Walkers is pleased to advise that it acted as Cayman Islands counsel to Pine Brook, the New York-based investment firm, on its equity line investment in specialist aircraft finance company Amedeo in relation to its order of 20 A380 aircraft from Airbus, which was announced on 12 February 2014.

Amedeo, previously Doric Lease Corp, is a dedicated and actively managed widebody aircraft acquisition and leasing platform. It acts in a principal investment capacity with respect to both aircraft acquisitions and sale and leaseback transactions.

The Walkers team, based in the Cayman Islands, was led by partner Caroline Williams, with assistance from Nicholas Pattman and Barnaby Gowrie. Walkers worked alongside Vinson and Elkins LLP who acted as instructing counsel for Pine Brook.
