Although our lessors and lender clients include several members of the Monitor 100, no single client or type of business enterprise dominates our client base.  We represent or have recently represented bank-affiliated leasing companies, including a major regional bank and community banks.  We have created leasing programs for both existing and start-up equipment leasing companies as well as for vendors entering the equipment finance business.  We represent captive vendor finance companies and those who finance vendor-originated transactions.  Our clients also include brokers, small leasing companies and lease originators as well as funding sources and lenders.
