FitzGerald Lawyers takes off with aviation insider

01 Sep 2020

Peter McCullough is an experienced aviation lawyer ex Pillsbury and Holman Fenwick Willan and joins FitzGerald Lawyers to develop its aviation practice at this critical juncture for the industry.  Amid all the chaos and disruption there is need for level-headed, pragmatic advice to manage risks/enforce rights and take advantage of opportunities to build new ventures and do business differently.

Darren FitzGerald, managing partner: "Like other senior lawyers at our firm Peter has deep specialisation that sets us apart from our competitors.  We see the need to support industry players and consumers in these challenging times and the opportunity to help rebuild.  All this from an independent, cost-effective platform.  Peter started life as an insurance litigator.  His dispute resolutions skills are a useful second string to his bow and will no doubt be drawn on by our disputes team."

Peter McCullough: “While these are testing times for the aviation industry in Asia (and globally), there remain areas of legal practice where a firm like FitzGerald Lawyers can offer assistance. Airlines are assessing their route networks, with services to cities such as Hong Kong and other parts of Asia under threat. FitzGerald Lawyers can assist on the ground, with advice on the implications of closing an airline outstation or the termination of agreements under Hong Kong law. Many aviation disputes are being referred to arbitration. This is an area in which FitzGerald Lawyers has particular expertise.  Notwithstanding all this aviation start-ups are active and FitzGerald Lawyers offers a launchpad here, adding value at the right price.”
