White & Case has strengthened its aviation and asset-based finance capability in Asia by relocating New York-based partner Hallam Chow to the firm’s Hong Kong office.
Chow, who joined White & Case’s New York office in 1994, specialises in innovative limited recourse project financings and a wide variety of aircraft finance deals on behalf of airlines, lenders, lessors and manufacturers.
He has advised The Export-Import Bank of the United States in the $320m (£193m) project financing of the iPSTAR satellite of Shin Satellite Public Co in Thailand and the $1.2bn (£725m) sale of the 2,029-megawatt Millstone nuclear facility in Connecticut to Dominion Resources Inc.
“The potential is enormous in Asia, and in particular China, for developing and executing asset-based financing deals. That is why I am so excited to be joining the White & Case team in Hong Kong,” said Chow.
