Defense & Aviation

Ensuring that complex agreements are negotiated with legal finesse.

The growing demand, the increase in players, the regulatory pressures and the globally entwined nature of the aerospace and defence sector requires a thorough understanding of the contemporary legal and policy issues. To mitigate operational challenges ranging from infrastructure, procurement, logistics, technological innovation to disputes, advance planning and timely intervention is imperative.

We advise private as well as publicly listed domestic carriers, international airlines, associations, aviation authority, airport operators and industry manufacturers on the laws and regulations pertaining to the aviation industry. Our assistance, inter alia, comprises cross-border leasing, sale and leaseback arrangements, equipment leasing, aircraft financing, sector-specific competition and labour law compliance. We specialize in ground handling contracts, real estate development projects and O&M agreements. Our team is also well-equipped to assist through the bidding process for airport development. We also render procurement and licensing advice to defence manufacturers and assist with defence procurement operations.
