One client says the corporate jets specialists at WFW are "efficient, professional and transparent" in their handling of private aircraft financing and transactional matters, adding that "the ability of the firm to simplify matters is a great benefit for both parties involved in a dispute or issue." Another client reports that "the multiple offices worked together seamlessly in the background to provide me with the information and results that I sought," adding that the firm "has a strong aviation law team that collectively have decades of experience in many jurisdictions."

Sources also praise the team's client-handling skills, with one saying they are "very efficient and understand the customer's needs very well, they're always ready to help and keep client requirements and timings above anything else." Another comments: "They are extremely professional and I appreciate their impartial advice and speed of service, and most importantly their industry knowledge and eye for detail."

Notable practitioners

Dubai-based lawyer Dhruv Paul is considered a key figure for private aircraft matters in the Middle East market, and is dual-qualified in India and England and Wales. For one client, Paul is "the main reason that I started to work with Watson Farley; his knowledge of the legal intricacies of aviation law never ceases to amaze me. He's my go-to person for when I need sound legal advice or find myself in a difficult commercial situation." One market insider highlights that "his knowledge of international aircraft transactions, rules and regulations in different countries is very good."

Oliver Tebbit "really deserves" his ranking, a fellow aviation lawyer says, explaining that "his practice is great - he is representing more individuals now, and some banks too." An aviation executive praises Tebbit's "knowledge of subject matter, practicality during negotiations, and willingness to provide general assistance without the immediate need for a billing." Another interviewee reports that "he has the ability to break down legal complexities for the client and is very experienced in the field of aviation law."
