Tennessee-based full-service law firm Bone McAllester Norton PLLC has expanded its entrepreneurial and emerging business law practice group to include legal services in the area of unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
The law firm says that attorneys in the practice group will focus on UAS regulatory and legal issues impacting commercial use, legal enforcement and privacy.
James E. Mackler is the lead attorney for UAS matters, with support from Richard J. Nickels and Stephen J. Zralek. The law firm reports that the three attorneys have experience in entrepreneurship, commercial law, aviation, protection of intellectual property, privacy concerns and regulatory compliance.
According to the law firm, its first UAS-centered client is Farmspace Systems LLC, a company that helps farmers obtain greater situational awareness of threats to their crops.
