Husch Blackwell said it has introduced its unmanned aircraft systems group, which will assist commercial business users and manufacturers in navigating the requirements for unmanned aircraft systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
Composed of a multi-disciplinary team that includes former fighter pilots, component and software developers, and data analysts, Husch Blackwell´s UAS/UAV Group is uniquely qualified to assist clients in the legal, privacy and regulatory issues associated with unmanned flight systems.
The technology used in unmanned aircraft systems is rapidly evolving. Commercial use allows for collection of data, mapping and surveillance of often remote and disparate environments at significantly reduced operating costs compared to land-based methods.
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, Husch Blackwell´s UAS attorneys focus on the key sectors and practices that matter most in this growing industry.
Husch Blackwell is an industry-focused, full-service litigation and business law firm with locations in 15 US cities and in London. For more information, visit www.huschblackwell.com.
