Aviation law is a niche that covers all aspects of the airline, and increasingly, the aerospace industry. While a niche, the variety of areas that aviation lawyers cover is remarkably wide. They may litigate on behalf of people and families involved in airplane crashes, negotiate contracts and compensation with employees in the airline industry, represent high-net individuals considering purchasing aircraft or aircraft-sharing leases, provide legal counsel to airplane manufacturers or lobby the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to change its regulations.
Aviation attorneys work in specialized practices within law firms, represent individuals and work for the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) or similar regulatory bodies in other countries. While the industry has undergone contraction from major and regional airline mergers and acquisitions, the rise of private aircraft ownership and leasing, a surge in drone technology and the global increase in airline travel make aviation law an attractive career option with a strong future. Whatever aspect most interests you, Lucas Group can help.
