Civil Litigation and Aviation Litigation
The firm has a broad civil litigation practice relating primarily to business disputes and aviation law. With respect to the former, our litigation practice supports our transactional practice by providing clients with counsel regarding the advisability of litigation, what to expect regarding the litigation process, and representing our clients in state and federal courts and before arbitration panels. We also represent clients in appeals from lower court decisions. The firm has also developed an expertise in aviation-related litigation. We represent manufacturers of engines, airframes, and component parts. We also represent fixed base operators (FBOs) and parties to aviation-related transactions such as purchase and sale and escrow arrangements. Mr. McPhail annually attends the Southern Methodist University Air Law Symposium to maintain his expertise in this area of the law.
