For a number of years, aviation has been the Law Firm’s strongest practice. The managing partner of the law firm has been listed as the single Lithuanian lawyer by the legal directory Who is Who Legal 2015 in the Transport - Aviation finance practice area.
We handle the most significant aviation transactions in Lithuania and are often attracted to support the aviation transactions in the CIS region. We are dedicated to providing expert legal services to companies active in the aviation sector. Generally, we work on all matters relating to the trading and financing of aircraft as well as many forms of aircraft lease (dry lease, wet lease, and ACMI) and act as local Lithuanian legal counsel in complex cross-border aviation financing transactions. We also deal with aviation services, aircraft mortgages, and other sector-specific regulations (e.g. EASA) for obtaining an AOC, as well as in investigations undertaken by civil aviation authorities.
Over the last years, we, in cooperation with the English solicitors, have been supporting an international lessor during the litigation process at the London Commercial Court; we also advised an airline in a dispute on revocation of the air operator’s certificate, advised airlines on the cancelled and delayed flights and many other contentious aviation matters.
Our industry specific knowledge is relevant to financial institutions, investors, lessors, lessees, airlines, airport companies, service providers and other stakeholders of the aviation industry.
