We regularly handle litigation involving mission-critical and precedent-setting issues in airport law, including the respective powers of airports and host municipalities to control land use, the authority of airports to control noise and access to their facilities, inverse condemnation, the ability of airport proprietors to fund innovative capital projects, challenges to FAA decisions, orders and regulations, and the environmental and regulatory requirements for airport expansion projects. In addition, we have considerable experience litigating airport compliance disputes before FAA.
We have appeared in courts from the United States Supreme Court and many federal appellate and district courts to state courts at every level as well as federal and state administrative agencies and tribunals. We are comfortable in all phases of litigation from pre-filing planning to discovery, complex motions practice, trial and appellate briefing, and argument. Recognizing that litigation is always costly and often uncertain, Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell is always alert to settlement opportunities and has successfully negotiated litigation settlements that have achieved the client’s objectives without the expense and uncertainty of litigation.
