Aviation Law

Aviation Law

Aviation is one of the most highly regulated and complex industries, meaning that informed legal advice is often required, especially as the aviation sector expands into new areas such as remotely piloted aircraft, or ‘drones’. With their operational experience in the aviation industry and their understanding of the regulatory schemes that apply to aviation, our Principals can give practical advice about how the law applies in the context of aviation.

Seeking compensation for injuries suffered in an accident is never easy, and the circumstances of aviation accidents can often make it even harder. Compensation for aviation accidents is governed by specialised laws which apply to passengers aboard commercial flights, or to those on the ground who are injured or have their property damaged by an aircraft. Our lawyers have experience navigating the twists and turns of air accident compensation laws to get results.
