Leasing Expert Witnesses
A lease is a contractual arrangement that solidifies the role of the lessee (user) and lessor (owner) of a specific asset such as a car, building, or piece of equipment. The lessor remains the legal owner of the asset, but the lessee gets the right to use the asset in return for regular rental payments. Leasing has advantages, such as a lack of restrictive contracts, the lessor provides full financing, tax savings, and an ease of obtaining a lease in contrast to obtaining a bank loan.
