“Leader in aviation”
Airports are complex, highly regulated organisations that face many challenges each day to operate safely. As experts in aviation law and airport operations, our experience of representing airport operators and their insurers in the UK is unrivalled.
Incidents and accidents happen and when they do, expert support from the Plexus Aviation team is readily at hand. Trusted by all of the major insurers who provide airport operators liability insurance, our clients are based both in the London aviation market and overseas.
We act for 85% of UK international airports in addition to airports across the EU, Scandinavia, South American and throughout the world including locations as far flung as the South Pacific.
Our expertise is balanced with the need to provide proportionate and cost-effective representation. Whether a claim runs into many millions of pounds or is valued below £50k our service levels and approach remains consistently high with value being an important part of the overall offering.
The types of claims we are regularly instructed on include those resulting from:
- Damage to aircraft
- Personal injury
- Health and Safety prosecutions
- EC 1107/2006 PRM claims
- Property damage
- Missed/delayed flights
As a direct response to our clients’ needs, we have developed a comprehensive crisis management service including media and PR support to ensure that both brand and reputation are safeguarded. When major incidents have happened, members of the team have been on-site within hours to assist in evidence gathering, document retention and investigations.
Using our extensive subrogated claims experience, we provide a cost-effective service for insurers and our airport clients to recover monies lost as a result of the actions of third parties.
Our bi-annual Airport Operators Symposium is a unique day built around the specific needs of our airport operator clients. The day is geared towards improving accident statistics, claims reduction, defensibility and mitigation and, crucially, improving our ability as an industry to establish and subsequently prove best practice when required in a court of law. Just another way in which we are spearheading and supporting key developments within the industry.
