Chris Orozco-Wallraff joins gunnercooke
Aviation finance lawyer Chris Orozco-Wallraff has joined gunnercooke as a partner. He specialises in representing aircraft and engine buyers, sellers, owners, lessors, and operators, including passenger and cargo airlines, particularly in leasing, trading, finance, maintenance and related transactions.
Orozco-Wallraff speaks English, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and Catalan so most frequently represents his clients in international transactions.
He previously worked at Rimon Law, Holland & Knight and Kaye Scholer and was also in-house counsel at International Lease Finance Corporation (now AerCap), one of the largest commercial aircraft leasing companies.
Originally a UK law firm, gunnercooke has expanded recently and now has offices in the UK, Germany and the US. More than 90% of its partners have worked as in-house counsel at some point.
“I am very excited about my move to gunnercooke. Joining gunnercooke will enable me to better service the needs of my clients and to expand my capabilities with gunnercooke’s existing aviation team.”
