Aviation and Shipping Litigation
Allen & Overy has a wealth of experience in aviation and shipping litigation.
We regularly act for aircraft lessors and financiers in the repossession of aircraft in the UK, Europe, Asia and the U.S. and advise on repossession strategies, including self-help remedies, court orders, cross-border enforcement strategies and arbitration.
We handle all areas of shipping litigation globally, whatever the type of vessel, cargo or commodity.
We are experienced in advising on Eurocontrol detention risk in Europe, particularly in the UK. We liaise with the Civil Aviation Authority and other national aviation authorities on the registration and deregistration of aircraft and advise on obtaining flight or ferry permits in a variety of jurisdictions. Our extensive global reach sees us acting in recoveries and repossessions all over the world, including the UK, India, Turkey and West Africa.
We work closely with our non-contentious Aviation and Shipping practices to deliver deep expertise to clients. We frequently act for aircraft lessors and financiers in relation to leasing and other aviation disputes, with claims for damages arising out of the failure to return in redelivery condition and loss of future rent.
