Aviation Law – understanding the fast paced industry
Aviation lawyers work within one of the most complex and fast paced industries. As the industry continually develops, the law and regulations governing aviation law have to change and adapt. Due to the increasing regulatory demands on businesses within the aviation industry, as well as the numerous issues faced by all businesses, it is essential that aviation companies seek advice from experienced aviation lawyers who can provide the appropriate advice and assistance.
There are numerous types of businesses which rely on the advice of aviation lawyers. These range from travel companies to airlines and airports as well as private charter companies and fleet owners. The complexity of aviation law means that aviation lawyers often specialise in niche areas in order to provide effective legal and commercial advice from drafting and negotiating contracts to facilitating businesses transactions..
Although businesses often engage the services of aviation lawyers to facilitate business transactions, businesses also require aviation lawyers to assist them when disputes arise. If, for example, a company purchases an aircraft component and finds the quality is not as agreed, then they may require a specialist in aviation law to assist in remedying the situation. Enforcing the terms of a contract or defending a company when disputes occur requires specific legal knowledge as well as in-depth knowledge of the industry so clients are generally advised to seek the services of an experienced aviation lawyer.
Due to the nature of the industry, many business transactions are multi-jurisdictional. Aviation lawyers are aware of the international nature of the industry and how this affects the business both commercially and legally. For example, different jurisdictions may have varying regulatory requirements which must be adhered to. In addition to having legal knowledge and being aware of key industry issues, aviation lawyers also understand how laws and regulations in other jurisdictions may impact their clients are able to provide appropriate business and legal advice.
As well as facing sector specific issues, businesses within the aviation industry also face similar issues to other businesses. They often require legal advice and assistance regarding issues such as employment and avoiding employment relate disputes in addition to other commercial advice. Experienced aviation lawyers can assist companies with hiring an effective workforce and providing the appropriate documentation to meet their legal obligations. Aviation lawyers can also provide advice regarding appropriate business structure and whether corporate restructuring would enable a business to fulfil its commercial objectives. The wealth of knowledge aviation lawyers have enables them to provide specialist advice regarding aviation law as well as assist businesses in finding solutions to complex commercial issues. By engaging with specialist aviation lawyers, companies operating within the aviation industry can ensure they are operating legally and that they are fulfilling their regulatory obligations as well as maximising their success within the industry.
