The aerospace and defense industry requires support from legal counsel with a sophisticated and comprehensive grasp of the complex business, legal and non-market dimensions of this highly competitive, highly scrutinized sector. Our interdisciplinary practice leverages the Firm's preeminent advisory, transactional, regulatory, and litigation experience to provide integrated strategic and tactical solutions that meet the specialized needs of our global aerospace and defense clients.
With defense companies looking to reshape their portfolios, and investors looking to capitalize on change in the aerospace and defense sector, transaction activity is expected to remain robust. However, with scrutiny intensifying from governmental, regulatory, and political authorities, aerospace and defense companies must enhance their operational performance, compliance profile, and policy and regulatory acuity to prosper. Our experience allows us to effectively partner with clients to forge creative, practical and cost-efficient solutions to exploit opportunities and help mitigate the related risks posed by political or regulatory scrutiny, or by adverse market or industry conditions.
Anchored in the world's leading financial centers, political capitals, and clusters of aerospace and defense industry activity, our practice is informed by the years of combined private sector, senior US and UK government, and military experience of our practitioners. Our highly regarded Aerospace and Defense Practice includes a former Trial Attorney and Special Assistant to the General Counsel of the Navy, and a former general counsel of two major national security contractors.
