Welcome to L2bAviation, the world’s premier network of independent aviation law firms

When I started as a lawyer in aviation finance and leasing in the early 1980’s it was very difficult to obtain advice about each jurisdiction. So with my then assistant Graham McBain I became founder editor of Aircraft Finance: Registration, Security and Enforcement which Graham now edits.

However it was still often a problem to find a lawyer who was a “safe pair of hands” in every jurisdiction. So I set up L2bAviation which is now recognised as the world’s premier network of independent aviation law firms. Clients can now gain access to member firms in over 40 countries and contacts throughout the rest of the world.

Our constantly growing network covers among other regions:

  • Europe
  • the Americas and the Caribbean
  • Africa
  • Middle East
  • Far East

You can have confidence instructing an L2bAviation Member as Members successfully represent:

  • Airlines

  • Lessors
  • Manufacturers
  • Insurers
  • Airports
  • Export Credit Agencies

If you would like to benefit from our expertise please contact our members and find out how they can assist your company.

Aviation is specialized.  Your attorney should be, too.

I enjoy working with Khachaturyan (of Asters) he is easy to work with and he is “quick to respond. – Chambers Global

It is important to us to have attorneys in foreign jurisdictions with aircraft and/or aviation finance experience.  We have been happy with our L2b lawyers.

I trust Ulrich’s judgment – his advice is both legally on point and commercially savvy. In reality, Ulrich functions more like an in-house attorney, since he acts on our behalf with very little supervision or direction required.

I am fortunate to have found Ulrich. He is one of a select group of outside attorneys on whom I absolutely rely.

Extremely responsive, very helpful and highly knowledgeable: they understand the cultural issues faced by foreign firms – Santamarina y Steta
