Aviation and Maritime Law Practice Group

Contact Attys. Mario V. Andres, Carlos M. Natividad or Jose P. Crisostomo, Jr.

A specialized litigation practice involving airlines, airline insurers and reinsurers, and maritime claims. Our lawyers have developed both experience and expertise in applying specific provisions of civil law requiring “extraordinary diligence in the transportation of goods and passengers,” international treaties such as the Warsaw Convention and special laws like the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act (COGSA). We defend our clients from claims as grave as those arising from injury and death in an air carriage or sea passage, as well as those arising from delay, damage to and loss of passenger baggage or cargo, and passengers getting “bumped-off” from flights.

We also handle applications for airfare increases for various sectors in local and international flights – a specialized practice before the Civil Aeronautics Board.

We have represented many international airlines, either directly or through their insurers, such as Philippine Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Gulf Air, Swiss Air, EVA Air, Malaysian Airlines System, and Korean Air, and represent several London-based Lloyd’s insurers, such as Beaumont and Son, the AON Group, Willis Corroon Aerospace and Nicholson Leslie Aviation.
