BALTIMORE—Increasingly, companies are looking to lease, rather than buy, planes, trains, boats, trucks and other heavy equipment and supply chain resources. And many of those companies look to Womble Bond Dickinson’s Baltimore-based Equipment Finance Team to structure these innovative leasing arrangements.

The new issues of I95 Business magazine profiles the Womble Bond Dickinson Equipment Finance Team, with comments from team leader Merrick Benn as well as lawyers Marina Andrews, Shari Bacsardi, Mike Dow, Chip Sturm and Ashton Zylstra.

“Lawyers traditionally start with ‘no’ – being defensive is an occupational hazard,” Benn tells I95 Magazine. “Our group, however, is made up of people with J.D. degrees who are also trained to think like business people. We try hard to wear that business cap with each decision we make. We are in the trenches with our clients. We are not here to say ‘no.’ We are here to explain the ramifications of doing x over y while helping clients achieve their objectives. Our clients’ business is our business.”
