The aviation industry is constantly faced with challenges resulting from rapid technological advances and “open skies” policies. We follow the development of this key industry closely, anticipating new challenges and trends, side by side with our clients, namely safety and security requirements, demands imposed by increasing cost reduction and passenger rights, as well as new environmental stipulations.

Our dedicated team of lawyers has a deep understanding of the domestic and international aviation market, particularly in Portugal and in the African and Timor-Leste jurisdictions where we operate. Our experience results from working with a wide range of clients over the years, including airline companies, regulatory authorities, export credit agencies, lessors, financiers and insurers.
