further expansion with hire of aviation regulatory specialist
February 6, 2018
We are pleased to announce that we are strengthening our practice with a lateral hiring which will significantly enhance the breadth of services offered by The Air Law Firm.
Chris Smith is a regulatory and commercial disputes specialist in the aviation and travel law sector. Chris spent 10 years in-house with a UK commercial airline before entering into private practice. Whilst being recognized as an aviation regulatory specialist in a number of industry and legal guides, Chris has a diverse practice encompassing both contentious and non-contentious work and has provided counsel to many large commercial airlines, as well as general aviation operators, FBOs, airport authorities, ground handlers and trade organizations.
John Korzeniowski, Partner at The Air Law Firm, says: “I am delighted that Chris has joined The Air Law Firm. He is highly regarded and comes with an excellent reputation and strong client relationships that fit with the firm’s industry focused strategy. During this unprecedented period of political uncertainty, we have seen a sharp increase in demand for regulatory support. Chris’ arrival will strengthen the support we are able to provide our clients in negotiating the complexities presented by Brexit, as well as growing our capability in existing areas of the firm’s practice.”
