- regulatory aspects
Aviation is one of the most strictly regulated industries. We advise on requirements that need to be met when starting a business and providing air transport services in Poland. We prepare schedules of actions and all documentation, and assist clients in obtaining certificates, air transport licences and flight permits. We also advise on special air transportation services, such as utilizing dual use equipment.
- corporate matters and disputes
We handle all corporate issues for an aviation business, including its winding up, if necessary. We set up aviation companies, as well as branches of foreign airlines. Our assistance covers share purchase transactions and changes of ownership in air carrier companies. In addition, our Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Practice can advise in even the most complex disputes arising in the aviation industry.
- aircraft purchase
We draw up contracts for purchases of aircraft and advise on financing such transactions. We review contracts, including those governed by foreign law, for their compliance with Polish law and their tax consequences.

Aircraft leasing is a key solution for many airlines. We have broad experience in drafting and negotiating aviation industry lease agreements. If necessary, we also assist our clients regarding lease of engines or other aircraft parts and equipment.
