Bob advises major U.S. and foreign passenger and cargo airlines, regional airlines, new entrant/low cost carriers, municipalities, airport owners and operators, airport developers, private equity and venture capital firms, maintenance, repair or overhaul companies, and aviation technology companies.
Bob has also served as general counsel to one of the first post-deregulation airlines. Under Bob's leadership, Chambers USA has consistently ranked Hogan Lovells as the top U.S. aviation law firm.
