Aviation

Who we are

We draw on the expertise of experienced aviation practitioners to provide commercially focussed and sector-specific legal advice to the aviation industry across multiple jurisdictions. We use our own offices and trusted networks around the world to deliver global reach and can offer tailored solutions spanning both contentious and non-contentious issues.

What we do

We provide advice to airlines, general aviation operators, airports, MROs, ground handling companies, aviation security companies and product manufacturers in both the civilian and defence spheres. Our work has featured drones, gyrocopters, gliders, hot air balloons, rotor and fixed-wing aircraft, executive jets and wide-body airline operations. We are particularly focused upon providing aviation advice to the insurance industry, acting for insurers, reinsurers and assisting brokers where needed – including claims defence and coverage work and a successful subrogation offering.

What we are known for

  • Our team members have a strong track record of acting on major losses including the Shoreham Airshow loss in 2015 (one of the largest UK general aviation losses in over a decade), the 2016 LaMia accident in Colombia and the loss of Spanair Flight 5022.
  • We take pride in offering high quality advice on a cost-effective basis, seeking creative solutions to resolve disputes at an early stage whenever possible.
  • Ours is a truly global practice, with experience across Europe, Latin America, Africa, the Far East, Australasia and North America.
  • We are supported by a strong and cohesive network of regional offices, uniquely positioning us to respond efficiently to clients needing legal input in the UK and beyond.
