Litigation & Advocacy

You need knowledgable professional advocacy when your matters are before the courts and regulators. My practice is focused exclusively upon Canadian and international aviation law, and I have an in-depth understanding of Canada's Aeronautics Act, the Canadian Aviation Regulations, the Canada Transportation Act, and international law such as the Cape Town Convention. I routinely act on the specific litigation matters facing aviation owners and air operators.

Aviation Transactions

Aircraft and powerplants are valuable assets with specific characteristics, risks, and liabilities that are unique to aviation. Successful ownership of aviation assets requires aviation-specific insights. I provide legal advice, representation, contract negotiation, and legal due diligence on aviation transactions for aviation owners and operators. Alongside your transaction team of brokers and maintenance engineers, I act on your behalf for successful purchase, sale, lease, and lease return transactions.

Legal & Regulatory

The legal and regulatory environment of aviation is complex. In consultation with aviation owners and operators, I combine legal and aviation insights to structure aircraft ownership options and to develop regulatory risk mitigation and compliance strategies. I help with ownership models for active or passive direct ownership; leased, shared and fractional aircraft ownership; and regulatory compliance strategies where you anticipate or have reached an impasse in achieving your aviation objectives.
