“Aviation Law” Can Cover a Lot of Territory

Aviation Law covers three legal fields: transactions, dispute resolution, and regulatory matters. Transactions include aircraft finance (sale and purchase agreements, financing agreements and leasing agreements), as well as commercial transactions such as airline-airport use and lease agreements.

Dispute resolution concerns commercial disputes, torts, contract of carriage claims, and employment issues. Thus, it means more than securing compensation for clients who suffer injuries or damages due to incidents or accidents on board aircraft, though it does include that. It also means solving airline employees’ labor disputes and working out disagreements between an airport and an airline for instance.

Finally, regulatory matters include aircraft certification, pilot qualifications and disciplinary issues, safety standards, slot administration. Legal issues around airport operations, development, and growth, as well as air traffic control regulations that can significantly impact the quality of life of communities close to airports.

Our Aviation Law attorneys have represented professional pilots in “cabin toxicity”, hearing loss, and other work-environment lawsuits. They have also brought claims against an airline manufacturer on behalf of a class of hundreds of professional pilots for lost wages, economic damages, and other claims arising out of the manufacture and sale of faulty aircraft. And our Aviation Law team regularly represents passengers who have been damaged as a result of flight delays, re-routing, and cancelation.

On the business side, AEGIS Law aviation lawyers help business clients and private individuals with airplane financing agreements, aircraft purchase, sale, lease agreements, and fractional ownership agreements.

It’s not just about legal services, It’s about you.

Our team of legal experts has worked in the M&A industry for many years and knows it well. We are committed to giving our clients the best service possible.
