Atkinson Haskins has extensive experience and knowledge in handling aviation matters. Part of this experience is attributed to Shareholder Walt Haskins in particular, who is an instrument-rated pilot and a member of the Lawyer-Pilots Bar Association. Our firm is also one of the few in the region that is approved by the U.S. Aviation Underwriters and the Aviation Insurance Group (AIG).
Our representation in this field has included a broad range of clients involved in aviation, including major airline companies, aircraft manufacturers, individual aircraft owners, municipalities, and aviation authorities. The firm has specialized in the defense of claims arising from accidents, negligence, premises liability, maintenance, safety, and purchase or lease contracts. Our attorneys also have experience in interpretation and application of FAA regulations, aircraft title insurance, and other operational issues.
