Overview

Team

“Our advice will be free from fear and complexity, delivered boldly and be clear cut, but above all it will be provided by a team of aviation professionals”.

With decades of experience from careers within airlines, ground service providers, manufacturers, lessors, and aircraft engineering businesses we are uniquely placed to provide a truly full-service aviation offering.   Our lawyers have led on some of the most ground-breaking projects from cross-border airline investment and cooperation to restructuring and rebranding. 

We have guided businesses through the complexities of cross-border competition clearances as well as those arising out of the aviation regulatory regimes at both domestic and supranational levels.

When not supporting our clients’ growth strategies we protect what truly matters to them by avoiding and resolving disputes.  Our team has been successfully involved in aviation related litigation and international arbitration acting for airlines, lessors, maintenance facilities and ground handling businesses.
