Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell has earned a national reputation for assisting local governments and community organizations affected by airport operations. Because of our decades-long experience representing airport proprietors and local governments who play host to airports, we are well prepared to provide counsel on a host of airport-related issues. As a result of our representation of local governments affected by airport operations and development, our lawyers have gained insight into all perspectives in contentious debates, insights which are of great value to airport sponsor and local government clients alike.
We represent clients in many of the most complex airport-development projects in the country, litigating numerous expansion cases, negotiating precedent-setting noise regulations and land-use-mitigation arrangements, as well as drafting economic development agreements between airports and their host communities. We successfully negotiate settlements, intergovernmental agreements and other arrangements that bring certainty and permanence to the relationship between airports and their neighbors in some of the most high-profile airport-capacity projects in the nation. Where necessary, we litigate to bring leverage to find solutions to problems that arise from impacts on airport neighbors.
