Cases

US Aviation Litigation

Together with PMJ PLLC in Chicago, Illinois, we are prosecuting a class action against Boeing on behalf of pilots the world over who allege they received insufficient training to fly an unsafe aircraft – the Boeing 737 MAX – and were thus defrauded into committing to fly it; and, actions for injured pilots exposed to bleed air fumes on both Airbus and Boeing aircraft.

Global Aviation Litigation

We represent a variety of victims of air accidents, civilian aviators who have suffered injuries in day to day life, as well as ex-military aviators facing a broad range of legal issues. Recently we were retained to assist pilots overseas who allege they were dismissed in bad faith by their airlines due to COVID-19.

Australian Pilot Cases

Our firm represents pilots who are facing disputes with CASA in relation to their medical certificates and other qualifications, and has more experience in negotiating appropriate resolutions for them than any other firm in Australia. Our services for pilots are available by reasonable fixed fees and include dispute resolution through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
