Maria Chambers

Maria has a genuine passion for financing generally, and aviation financing in particular - an interest awakened early as in-house counsel at Scandinavian Airline System (SAS). Maria studied finance at Fordham University in New York. She also began her career as a lawyer at this time, working first at the New York office of Mannheimer Zetterlöf and subsequently at the same firm in Stockholm. After 5 years with the firm and after a merger (Mannheimer Swartling), Maria continued her carreer at Setterwalls law firm, which at that point in time had an active Aviation Group. Maria has represented clients in the leasing business as well as airlines, banks and lessors. Her legal services have involved leasing issues, general aviation matters, and regulatory issues.

"One of the world’s leading aviation lawyers"

In addition her work on aviation transactions, Maria has also been highly involved in legislative issues and had a major influence on the process surrounding Sweden's accession to the Cape Town Convention. Maria has assisted many clients in matters involving company law, particularly those relating to shareholders’ agreements and related issues. Her work at Chambers Almelöv & Hjelmqvist continues to involve work on aviation matters, including transactions as well as registration issues and other regulatory questions.
