Aerospace & Defense

Rapidly developing platforms, combined with military spending cuts, reductions in new weapons programs, and a shift from reliance on government contractors to technology firms are just some of the challenges aerospace and defense firms face today. Although global defense revenues are rebounding as governments respond to heightened security threats, growing profitably while cutting costs requires a new approach. Successful strategies include restructuring, partnering with technology firms to build innovative combat devices based on proven designs, and focusing on cyber defense, among others.

We guide start-up to Fortune 500 aerospace and defense clients through procurement processes, lending, mergers and acquisitions, and joint development and licensing agreements. Our attorneys understand the complexities of the industry, and can advise you on government contracting, ITAR regulations, and protection and licensing of worldwide patent and trademark portfolios. And, our Unmanned Aerial Systems (“UAS”) working group actively monitors regulatory and industry trends that may impact clients in this complex and fast-moving field.
