Keeping the industry in the air

 

It’s physics that keeps a plane in the air, but we keep the industry flying. For more than 25 years, we’ve been working with aviation insurers, domestic and international airlines, airport authorities—and the industry’s regulators—to determine coverage and defend claims.

We live and breathe insurance claims, carrier’s liability claims and air accident litigation. We defend claims for owners and operators of all sizes—not only commercial airlines but smaller operations, too. From charter flight providers, to repairers and flight training organisations as well.

In Australia and across Asia-Pacific, we help resolve coverage issues. Hull loss, passenger and third party liabilities, hangar keeper's liabilities, aviation product liability, ground handling and subrogated recovery actions—we’ve worked on it all.

When accidents happen, we’re in your corner defending prosecutions in the federal tribunals and courts, and representing clients in coronial inquests and commissions of inquiry.

Not many people know that we often work with the ATSB, Air Services Australia and state police—and advise on death, injury and property claims.

We go beyond insurance. Aviation clients ask for our advice in corporate governance, employment and operational activity, certification and regulatory requirements. We even advise operators and pilots on licensing and regulatory issues, aircraft acquisition and leasing, security and registration requirements, and supplier and distribution agreements.

If we can’t help, we know who can. Our international network of contacts means you’ll always have the team you need to keep you flying.
