DoT and FAA Regulatory

Understanding and dealing with the FAA and DoT calls for a legal team with an insider perspective on aviation regulatory matters.

Our lawyers counsel companies on economic licensing, consumer protection, operational licensing, and safety.

We help clients apply for authorities, exemptions, and waivers. And defend against enforcement.

Our team works strategically across the aviation industry. All on your behalf. 

We draft and negotiate corporate aircraft agreements. Seek DoT/FAA exemptions. Comment on rulemakings. 

Members of our team held senior-level roles at key agencies. So we have the relationships and inside perspective to handle your needs.

Let us guide you to opportunity.
