Our fast growing team of aviation experts advise clients on a very broad range of aviation matters, be it within the general aviation, business jet, airline, airport, engineering or product/manufacturer arenas.
Contentious work typically includes defending clients and dealing with personal injury/fatality, damage and product liability claims or dealing with insurance coverage. Subrogation claims are also a regular feature. We also have experience in dealing with regulatory matters and commercial disputes. We pride ourselves on being a one-stop shop for clients who often also need assistance with employment, property, tax, corporate/commercial or private client matters.
Our membership of global networks, such as Insurance Law Global and Legalink, as well as our team’s extensive network of contacts and experience in managing aviation correspondent lawyers, means we are perfectly placed to handle claims with an international element.
Two members of our team have held private pilot licences and the head of our aviation team remains a current pilot with night rating and held the rank of Flight Lieutenant in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve (Training) Branch, for many years, where he has had the opportunity to fly a wide variety of aircraft including piston and turbo-prop trainers, fast jets, helicopters and multi-engine types.
Our experience ensures that our team truly understands the challenges facing clients while having the ability to target the relevant issues and provide the most intuitive and helpful advice and service.
The depth of our team also means that we can provide you with lawyers of the appropriate level of experience to handle your case.
With a keen eye to our client’s commercial needs, we offer our clients the highest quality bespoke service, delivered by experts at the best possible price.InsightsLEGAL COMMENT: Coincidence or defect? Boeing faces safety questions after Ethopian Airlines crash
