Perkins Coie’s Aviation and Aerospace group has an unparalleled record of representing aerospace and aviation companies. No other firm has the level of understanding, experience and qualifications we do when it comes to aviation. Our clients call us time and again because of our previous successes on their behalf, knowing that we will be able to bring our expertise to bear, no matter the stakes.

Our strength in aviation product liability litigation is recognized worldwide:

  • Chambers USA ranked our team in Band 1 for Aviation Litigation in 2009 - 2019
  • The Legal 500 United States recommended our practice in Product Liability and Mass Tort Defense: Aerospace/Aviation in 2009 - 2013 (category has since been eliminated)

We have defended clients domestically, in state and federal courts, and internationally and have successfully litigated matters involving virtually every aspect of aerospace technology, including satellites.

Our relationship with insurance companies proves invaluable for our clients. Balancing the insurer’s and the client’s needs can prove challenging, yet our lawyers have been able to meet both groups’ expectations, leading to additional opportunities to serve our clients well.

We are on the forefront of new aerial and unmanned technology, counseling industry leaders and newcomers to the industry on risk and liability issues. We also speak to manufacturers at trade conferences about regulations and policy as they are being made in this new area.
