We represent airport operators and numerous cities, counties, states, and municipal authorities that own and operate airports. In the United States, we handle regulatory matters for these clients before the Department of Transportation and legislative matters before Congress and local authorities.
Projects include federal funding programs for airport improvements, noise mitigation projects, and essential air service programs. In the United States, we have one of the nation’s premier municipal finance practices and have served as bond counsel on many airport facility revenue bond issues. We represent our airport operator clients on inverse condemnation and noise litigation matters, and on issues concerning tenant default and bankruptcy. Our lawyers have also negotiated domestic gate rights assignments, hangar leases, and acquisitions.
