Aviation Dispute Resolution

Meet the team

Advising on complex and high-value contentious matters in jurisdictions across the globe, our aviation disputes experts provide first-class legal advice to our clients.

We act for the world’s leading airlines, airports, banks, corporate and general aviation operators, leasing companies and others involved in the aviation sector.

Our team, which is the largest of its kind, has extensive experience in a broad range of aviation disputes, both in court proceedings and arbitrations, including: the financing and leasing of aircraft, such as aircraft and engine repossessions and redelivery disputes, technical and maintenance issues, insurance, regulatory issues, general contractual claims, sanctions, criminal and competition investigations, ESG litigation, insolvency, and bankruptcy issues and claims.

Much of our work is multi-jurisdictional and our aviation disputes team regularly collaborates with each other and with other specialist dispute resolution teams, members of our broader aviation team and with other law firms around the world to provide clients with a seamless service.

Dispute prevention is also a key part of our practice and we regularly work with clients, using our in-depth industry knowledge and expertise, to avoid disputes or achieve an early settlement by means of alternative dispute resolution.
