Chambers and Partners High Net Worth has named Pillsbury partner Paul Jebely as its 2018 Private Aviation and Yachts Lawyer of the Year. The Chambers editorial team noted various accolades from both clients and peers at other firms, including an observation by one client that "he represents the future of law."

"I am humbled and honored to receive such prestigious individual recognition, but it is also testament to the strength of our firm’s asset finance and private wealth practices," Jebely said of the award.

Jebely focuses on advising ultra-high net worth individuals and their businesses in Asia, the U.S., the Middle East and Africa in respect of their private aviation needs. In all, he has advised clients on over U.S. $13 billion in aircraft finance, leasing and trading transactions as well as on related restructuring and contentious matters. Qualified to practice law in England, the United States and Canada, he also serves as the managing partner of Pillsbury’s Hong Kong office and co-chair of its global asset finance practice.

For a century and a half Pillsbury has been discreetly serving as trusted counsel to many of the wealthiest individuals in the United States, and now globally, on various aspects of their private and business affairs. Often referred to as the "gold standard" in legal market research, the independence and impartiality - as well as the unparalleled reach and depth of analysis - has made Chambers and Partners the most trusted information source for the global legal profession.
