Are you looking for a quality alternative to city aviation practices?
How we can help
We’re passionate about aviation and consider ourselves specialists that understand the law rather than just lawyers. Whether you’re a national or international airline, charter company, lessor, airports, MRO, component support company, ground handler, or their insurer, we provide cost-effective advice and guidance.
Strong relationships are at the heart of the aviation industry and are vital to help you operate successfully. This is why we work with you to learn about your business and place in the industry, help foster new connections and strengthen existing relationships while protecting you and your business.
When multi-jurisdictional issues arise, we can call on our network of trusted international correspondents to deliver a seamless service.
Our cross-disciplinary team has worked with a range of businesses across the aviation sector. We understand the complex, highly regulated and competitive market in which you operate, as well as the legal and reputational pressures you face. We can advise on appropriate solutions for a number of issues, such as:
Transactions: We have managed the sales process for both buyers and sellers of aircraft and aircraft engines. We understand the intricacies of dealing with such high-value items, so we work with you to complete the deal as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Contracts: No matter what type of contract you are entering in to, our commercial specialists will work with the other side to secure the best terms and protect your business.
Disputes: When issues arise, we will work with you to identify the quickest and most suitable method of reaching resolution that is commercially right for you.
Managing risks: Whatever part of the industry you are in, the interests of your clients, the end user and the wider public need to be safeguarded. We therefore work with you assess potential risks and devise plans to mitigate them.
Our experienced and knowledgeable lawyers are able to respond quickly and proactively to manage claims anywhere in the world. They pride themselves on acting sensitively but efficiently, and always with the aim of protecting your company and brand.
