Aviation & Aerospace



Wilson Elser’s 20-plus years of experience in aviation law encompasses commercial and general aviation as well as all types of aviation claims and litigation, including insurance, reinsurance and subrogation. In addition, we represent entities involved in the aerospace industry, including researching, designing, manufacturing, operating and maintaining vehicles that can operate in both air and space and have a multitude of commercial, industrial and military applications. Clients of the firm include every aviation-related company and professional from major airlines to aviation mechanics, ground handlers, and cargo operators. In addition, Wilson Elser can provide an array of services, such as corporate and tax matters, finance, government contracts, commercial litigation, international law and insurance law. Our attorneys have decades of experience handling clients in local, regional, national and international jurisdictions and locations.

The attorneys in Wilson Elser’s Aviation practice frequently work “cross-practice” with their counterparts in other firm service areas whose experience supplements their own; for example, Insurance & Reinsurance, Product Liability, Prevention & Government Compliance, Class Action, Appellate, Environmental and e-Discovery.
