Several key aviation and legal media outlets published articles to highlight the arrival of partner Chris Harrison and the role he plays in the expansion of Katten's Aviation Finance team to London. Aviation Finance Chair Timothy Lynes stated, "We are pleased to officially kick off our dedicated aviation finance team in London. Although the practice group's US lawyers already regularly consult with their colleagues in London on a variety of matters, Chris and his colleagues bring a new dimension and depth to the practice. We are very pleased to have such an aircraft finance veteran as Chris at the forefront of this initiative."

The core London aviation finance team consists of partners Chris Harrison and Charlotte Sallabank; associates Katya Harrison, Victoria Sinton, Alex Taylor and James Gledhill; and paralegals Nicole Akinyemi and Maxime Chevot. Chris stated, "It is a privilege to be taking on the role of leading the London office's aviation finance team. Formally establishing a dedicated team here demonstrates Katten's ongoing commitment to its clients in the aviation industry."

The articles also highlighted the recent addition of capital markets partner Tim Kirby to the greater aviation team, and discussed how Katten's structured finance, tax, bankruptcy and restructuring, capital markets, finance, and corporate practice members in London and the United States work alongside the aircraft finance practice group members to serve the aviation industry.
