Global Transportation Finance Shareholder Edward K. Gross recently co-authored “Leases” in the Fall 2022 edition of The Business Lawyer.

The survey covers several 2021 cases involving disputes among parties to equipment leases or other personal property financings and cases involving third parties claiming to have related rights or interests. The courts in these cases considered many of the fundamental issues often raised by parties and others when litigating commercial enforcement, bankruptcy protections and other claimed rights, including the associated rights and interests and liability considerations relating to these leases and financings. The following case law developments are covered:

  • True Leases
  • Lease Damages
  • Vicarious Liability
  • Forum Selection Clauses
  • Hell or High Water Clauses
  • Rights of Assignees

Published quarterly, The Business Lawyer is an American Bar Association publication with a circulation of over 40,000 readers. It contains articles of significant interest including case law analysis and developing trends.
