Ranked under Tier 1 by Asia Pacific Legal 500 and recipient of Asia Business Law’s Philippine Law Firm Award for year 2018 - 2019, we are well-versed in representing various foreign and local air carriers in dispute resolution before the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) and in litigation before regular courts on claims for damages, enforcement of Air Passenger Bill of Rights and other matters.

Our team is often called upon to represent air carriers before the CAB, and we regularly provide advice on air carrier permit registration and renewal requirements, fuel surcharge petitions, and other regulatory operating requirements that must be complied with by airlines to maintain their permits.

We likewise assist new foreign air carriers in registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and in securing all the necessary permits to operate, including applications for Air Operator Certificates with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

When appointed as Resident Agent by foreign air carriers, our lawyers ensure that all reportorial requirements of the SEC are promptly complied with.

Our Aviation Team is headed by Peter M. Bantilan and Arturo G. Selim, both recognized as Leading Individuals for Aviation by Asia Pacific Legal 500 (2019).
