Jeffrey T. Veber named to Vedder Price Executive Committee

Jeffrey T. Veber, a Shareholder in Vedder Price’s Global Transportation Finance group and a member of the Board of Directors, has been named to the firm’s Executive Committee.

Veber has over 25 years of experience representing clients in transportation finance matters, advising lenders, including commercial and investment banks and export-credit agencies, equity participants, funds, leasing companies and other financiers and investors in a wide range of matters. These matters include cross-border leveraged leases, asset backed securitizations, structured financings, mortgage financings, back-leveraged operating lease financings, joint ventures and asset purchase agreements involving commercial aircraft and railcars.

Since joining the firm in 1994, Veber has been highly regarded in the industry as a top transportation finance lawyer. During his 25 years at the firm, Veber worked closely with departing Shareholder and Executive Committee member Dean N. Gerber, helping to distinguish the commercial aviation finance practice as “one of the top law firms for Asset Finance in the world,” as noted by Chambers Global. Gerber recently joined Vedder Price client ORIX Aviation as its General Counsel.

“Jeff has already demonstrated himself as a strong leader in the firm’s New York operation and globally for our transportation finance practice,” said Michael A. Nemeroff, President and CEO. “His considerable experience and business acumen will help drive Vedder’s continued client-focused approach and long-term business strategy. We look forward to his contributions in this well-earned leadership position.”

“It’s an honour to serve on our Executive Committee and help lead the firm’s direction and growth into the future,” said Veber. “I’ve been privileged to work with terrific colleagues and top-notch attorneys over these last 25 years at Vedder, and I look forward to contributing my perspective to the collective success of our attorneys and clients alike.”
