This is the third in an occasional series highlighting the firm’s practice areas
The attorneys of the Aerlex Law Group have decades of experience in handling aviation and business litigation. Indeed, Aerlex originally grew out of an aircraft insurance defense practice that began more than 20 years ago.
Unique & Specialized Knowledge
Aerlex attorneys have a unique and specialized knowledge of the aviation industry that helps them successfully litigate complex aviation cases, including the representation of aircraft owners, aircraft operating companies, insurers, fixed base operators (FBOs), aircraft and component part manufacturers, and Part 121, 135 and 145 certificate holders. The firm’s litigation department has considerable experience in the repossession of aircraft on behalf of lenders, and the enforcement of aircraft liens on behalf of repair stations and FBOs.
Years of Experience
Aerlex attorneys also have many years of experience in representing pilots, mechanics and aviation businesses in administrative enforcement proceedings before the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board and the U.S. Department of Transportation. In fact, one of Aerlex’s attorneys was at one time responsible for defending all FAA enforcement cases brought against the pilots and mechanics of a major U.S. airline.
Broad Range of Litigation Services
Our litigation practice has broadened over the years. Today, in addition to aviation-specific litigation, Aerlex’s attorneys represent clients in an array of complex litigation matters in federal and state courts throughout California, as well as in proceedings before governmental agencies and in all forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration and mediation. Aerlex provides cost-effective legal services in business and commercial disputes, real estate litigation, construction litigation and insurance-related matters, including coverage issues and liability defense. Aerlex’s attorneys also handle a variety of employment matters, including the defense of discrimination and wrongful termination claims, both in courts and state and federal administrative agencies.
Alternatives to Litigation
Our years of experience also help us to fulfill the critical role of wise counselor. There are times when filing or defending a lawsuit may be the only way to vindicate one’s rights, but there are also occasions when litigation is not the most advantageous route to favorable or speedy resolution of a dispute. We pride ourselves on our ability to evaluate a client’s problem on its merits, applying our knowledge of the law to the facts of a given situation. Aerlex attorneys consider all of the circumstances that have culminated in a controversy and offer clients experienced and honest assessments as to whether litigation is the appropriate mechanism for resolving their dilemma.
Putting Clients First
Whether it’s skillful advocacy in the courtroom, strategic planning for complex settlement negotiations, or managing of a repossession on the runway, the attorneys of the Aerlex Law Group are ready to support their clients in times of dispute and confrontation.
