Aviation law is the branch of law that concerns flight, air travel, and associated legal and business concerns. Some of its area of concern overlaps that of admiralty law and, in many cases, aviation law is considered a matter of international law due to the nature of air travel.
Montello Law devotes its practice to corporate aircraft transactions both domestic and worldwide. We counsel foreign and domestic corporate and individual clients on issues relating to the acquisition, leasing, registration and financing of new and pre-owned aircraft (including fractional aircraft), including planning for and implementing tax efficient structures, related FAA and DOT regulatory matters, regulatory evaluation of operations, aircraft management arrangements, personal use issues and compensation-related SEC issues in connection with the use of business aircraft by public companies, and registration of aircraft using available alternatives for non-citizens such as owner trusts, voting trusts and other approved methods.
The firm brings its extensive experience with numerous corporate aircraft transactions to any transaction, and understands the needs of business owners and executives.
