Meet the Team >

Greenberg Traurig’s Aviation Group has substantial knowledge and technical experience across the aviation industry. Our multidisciplinary team takes advantage of vast resources across our corporate, finance, tax, labor and employment, antitrust/competition, intellectual property, governmental affairs, environmental, regulatory, litigation, and insolvency practices to provide a sector-focused approach and “ground control” clients can trust. We recognise that airports, airlines, manufacturers, and other stakeholders face complex decisions every day involving their operations, risk management, supplier and customer disputes, and other legal and business challenges – usually involving different regulatory regimes in multiple jurisdictions. We are here to help clients navigate these issues, opportunities, and complexities.

Our practice includes the following sectors: 

  • Airports
  • Aviation Litigation
  • Aviation Restructuring
  • Business Aviation
  • Commercial Aviation

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Prior to 2020, our attorneys were already helping clients address growing safety and security concerns, climate pressures, increased competition, and other issues significantly impacting the aviation industry. With the global COVID-19 pandemic, the same pressures are now exacerbated by new and unprecedented challenges. Our team partners with clients to guide them through these uncertainties and tackle whatever challenges arise. In particular, our team has partnered a major U.S. airline, to provide support in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), as well as represented a national airline client in breach of contract cases related to the global pandemic.

Aviation Litigation

Greenberg Traurig's Aviation litigators are focused on client needs, trust, and collaboration, to secure results. We prepare our clients for take-off in major industry hubs. Our attorneys work with national and global airlines, airport owners and operators, and airline services companies on litigation matters involving commercial disputes, personal injury and property damage claims, products liability, intellectual property, environmental issues, securities class actions, derivative actions, labor and employment matters, data privacy, advertising and branding, real estate, and regulatory law.

Whether we are coordinating trials, negotiating settlements, or litigating cases, Greenberg Traurig's primary focus is protecting our aviation clients' interests as a strategic partner. We were not only named within the Class Action Reporter's 2019 list of "Most Active Class Action Defendant Law Firms," but also recognized as a "Litigation Powerhouse" and among the "Most Feared Firms in Litigation" by the BTI Consulting Group Inc. We bring the full breadth of this experience in our representation of aviation clients; GT means Go for Takeoff.
