International Aviation and Transport Law:
Made-to-measure full service.

As a one-stop shop, we manage all legally relevant activities on behalf of our client airline and transport companies – whether it be contract law advice, defending administrative offence proceedings, or handling mass claims.

Expertise

Full-Service.
Legally watertight, cost-effective, and predictable.

Since 2015, we have offered international airline and transport companies consulting and a full range of services in all legal issues and matters. We can optionally operate on a fixed case fee basis, keeping the costs transparent, proportionate and predictable for our clients.

Fields of activity

Rebut unjustified demands, process justified claims speedily.

As a claims processing and debt management partner, we are on hand to assist airline companies with our fully digitalised administrative structure, not least to ensure the economy of procedures.

We attend to

  • all liability issues surrounding transport operations, especially accidents
  • drafting partner contracts and T&Cs
  • Administrative offence proceedings, involving the German Federal Aviation Authority for example, and other regulators
  • industrial property rights, such as with warning notices
  • private international law, meaning all the issues surrounding the case concerning applicable national law

Transporting people and things from A to B, receiving professional legal advice from A – Z!

The international transport of passengers and goods via every conceivable route can throw up some complex, sometimes costly legal questions. Our efforts here are always directed towards making the claims processing and debt management procedures equally efficient and economic.

We assist our clients

  • with all liability issues surrounding transport operations, especially accidents
  • with drafting partner contracts and T&Cs
  • with administrative offence proceedings involving the regulators for example
  • with industrial property rights, such as with warning notices
  • with private international law matters, meaning with all questions concerning the determination and application of the right national legal system

Mass claims – tying up internal resources and making costs explode?

We manage mass claims on the basis of Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 (Air Passenger Rights Regulation) and the Montreal Convention on behalf of airline companies both domestically and abroad. In mass claims proceedings involving transport enterprises, such as shipping companies, we act on their behalf to manage ticket charge reimbursements due to non-performance of voyages. We also act on behalf of international companies in other sectors finding themselves exposed to mass claims proceedings, in cases of data breaches, for example. Our philosophy: Provide everything from a single source. All managed by a single source. We function like an amalgamated legal, financial and secretarial department for our clients. We structure and manage legal proceedings, attend to the payment transactions and accounts, and analyse the procedure. All with an individually adaptable software solution that facilitates continuous conciseness and complete transparency.

The benefits to you

Lower costs

Complete cost transparency: As an option, we can prepare an individual fixed case fee at the very outset, so that the costs remain transparent and economic.

We can ease the burden on your finance, legal and postal functions. We can manage incoming post, track time limits and deadlines, attend to the accounts, payment transactions and the archiving activities.

Legal certainty

Since 2105 we have manged more than 15,000 procedures from the court submission stage to the final decision – all thanks to a finely honed team and an intelligent administrative system.

Flexibility

We employ an individually adaptable software system. It is thanks to our close collaboration with our software provider that we can offer you customised solutions for all types of proceedings.

Transparency

We digitalise the complete judicial correspondence, making it available to you at any time. Every procedure can be fully examined at any time.
