Trial work in the aviation industry covers many areas from commercial, to employment to products liability. Our years of experience with aviation clients, including in 9/11 litigation, means we are intimately familiar with the issues facing this industry.
Campbell Campbell Edwards & Conroy represents domestic and foreign airlines and their insurers, aircraft manufacturers and component part suppliers, airport authorities and ground handling companies in a wide range of cases brought in state and federal courts and in domestic and international arbitration tribunals. The firm has substantial and current experience defending claims involving personal injury and death, discrimination, including post 9/11 passenger profiling, accessibility by travelers with disabilities, property damage and premises liability. We regularly litigate cases governed by the Warsaw Convention, Montreal Convention and other international treaties, as well as by the aviation laws and regulations of the United States. Our work for the aviation industry also includes general commercial litigation.
