    Our international team offers advice across all areas of employment including to airlines and aviation related businesses operating on a global basis.

    Our team can advise on all aspects of employment law affecting businesses within the aviation sector, including the implications of TUPE, drafting employment contracts and company policies, working hours and the operation of shift and flexible work patterns, leave entitlements and temporary work arrangements in compliance with immigration and labour regulations.

    Our clients include flag carriers, regional airlines, start up operations, low cost airlines and service providers. Our team are able to meet the legal needs of operators within the industry.

    We also have significant experience in trade union matters and advise on strikes, ballot challenges and lock out. One of our partners is the former head of legal at a major industry trade union, which provides us with a unique insight into these issues.
