Regulatory and Legislative
Our aviation attorneys use their knowledge of the regulatory system to develop innovative and precedent-setting operating structures for carriers. We handle regulatory and other administrative matters before the Department of Transportation (DOT) for the cargo and passenger air carrier industry and represent small operators in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) enforcement actions. In addition, we represent our clients—including trade associations, carriers, major airports, corporations and individuals—in matters before these agencies, as well as before the International Civil Aviation Organization and the National Transportation Safety Board. We have represented industry interests in a wide variety of proceedings, including judicial review of agency action. We also monitor federal legislation affecting the air transportation industry and represent client interests related to such legislation.
