Thad DamerisArnold & Porter

Arnold & Porter has an established reputation as the go-to firm for complex and highly publicized air crash investigations and accidents, a recent example of which was the team’s representation of long-time client Airbus in litigation in the US, France and Brazil resulting from the crash of TAM Linhas Aereas Flight 3054. This kind of high-profile and international work is illustrative of the team’s core strengths in headline mass torts and commercial disputes, as well as in international arbitration. Kenneth Chernof and James Herschlein co-chair the department from the Washington DC office, alongside ‘world-class litigatorsThad Dameris and Christopher Odell in the Houston office. David Weiner in Washington DC is another key litigator. Amanda Thomson is a rising star in the practice group, regularly working alongside Dameris and Odell in sensitive aviation litigation.
