Aviation services

When it comes to law, Aviation is a niche sector. Finding a law firm that not only understands the theory of Aviation law, but is also experienced in the sector can be challenging.

Lester Aldridge is  one of the few law firms outside of London that not only understand the theory but who have the expertise and experience to provide you with relevant specialist advice. We work with airlines, aircraft operators and airports to provide assistance and advice on a range of commercial, regulatory and legal matters.

We are experienced in assisting airports with planning issues and have a particular expertise in dealing with contracts for companies operating in the aerospace fields. We assist owners with sale and purchase issues and advise non-owners, operators of aircraft and those supplying services to aircraft operators with contractual disputes.

We also offer a standard English process service agent role for lessors, leasees of aircraft in the international forum.
