Husch Blackwell, a litigation and business law firm in the U.S. and U.K., has introduced its unmanned aerial systems (UAS) group, which will assist commercial business users and manufacturers in navigating the requirements for UAS and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Comprising a multi-disciplinary team that includes former fighter pilots, component and software developers, and data analysts, Husch Blackwell's UAS/UAV Group assists clients in the legal, privacy and regulatory issues associated with unmanned flight systems, the firm explains.
‘The technical applications of the UAS/UAV industry continue to outpace impending rulemaking regarding certification and operations requirements,’ says David Agee, co-leader of the group. ‘Because of this uncertain environment, operators need trusted counsel to navigate the complicated legal terrain.”
Led by Tom Gemmell – a former Air Force fighter pilot and intellectual property and commercial litigator – and David Agee – head of the firm's aviation team – the group says its attorneys focus on the key sectors and practices of the drone industry.
