The transportation industry has undergone considerable change in recent years.
STC Partners takes clients step by step through this changing environment, whether in the marine, land, railway or air transport domain.
The firm regularly assists transport-industry clients in connection with disputes about first-demand guarantees, delivery deadlines, equipment, payment, financing, technical performance or design problems.
In the marine-transport sector, our attorneys provide clients with tax guidance (tax regime for shipowners, VAT on ships, registration, customs problems, passport). They also arrange financing for ships, tax-leveraged financing in metropolitan France or in the French overseas departments and territories.
In the inland transport sector, STC Partners advises clients on their acquisition and restructuring and fleet-deconsolidation operations.
In the railway sector, our lawyers have renowned expertise in leveraged cross-border financing and refinancing (US, Kiwi, UK, Swedish leases) for major public industrial and commercial passenger carriers. In addition, our labour law attorneys assist family and international transport groups with their problems relative to senior managers and executives (and profit-sharing in particular).
In the air transport sector, our tax experts help clients with tax leases, lease termination, disagreements over the calculation of the economic share in respect of lease transactions, Pons or French fiscal lease arrangements. Our lawyers also provide clients with litigation assistance.
