VISCHER has a strong focus on advising airlines on a broad array of corporate matters. The advice encompasses contracts negotiations with service providers, such as travel offices, air-traffic authorities and airport operators, representation in damage and insurance cases as well as advice on leasing, buying and selling aircraft. Urs Haegi heads the practice and gives ‘very pragmatic‘ advice on various aviation-related contracts as well as on the setting up of airlines and corporate transactions regarding airline companies. The tax aspects of international transport matters are a focus area of Christoph Niederer.
