Robin Springthorpe's Summary

I lead the aviation disputes and contentious regulatory team in Bird & Bird’s London aviation group comprising 16 full-time aviation lawyers providing a full service to aviation clients, including all aspects of aircraft transactions, leasing and financing, disputes and regulatory work. We have over 1000 lawyers in 25 offices around Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.

Bird & Bird has been ranked the best aviation law firm in the UK in 2011-13.

All of my work is for aviation clients, principally airlines, lessors, corporate aircraft operators and travel companies. I have conducted complex domestic and international commercial litigation and arbitration for over 20 years. My work involves aircraft and engine leasing and financing disputes, repossessions, insurance coverage, technical and regulatory disputes (including EU Reg 261) and the other disputes which arise in the aviation industry.

I have advised on disputes involving aircraft in many jurisdictions, including the UK, the US, Mexico, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Dutch Antilles, Aruba, Sudan, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Botswana, Angola, Ghana, C A R, Egypt, South Africa, France, Spain, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Russia, UAE, Turkey, Iran, Libya, India, Cambodia, Burma, Malaysia and Indonesia.

I conduct litigation at all levels of the English courts and in the major arbitration forums, including arbitrations under the English Arbitration Act 1996 and pursuant to the rules of the LCIA, UNCITRAL and ICC. I also have experience of ADR techniques such as mediation.

I have been voted "Aviation Lawyer of the Year in England 2013" and I am regularly commended in in Chambers UK, Legal 500 and ‘Who’s Who Legal: Aviation". In Legal 500 I am also listed as one of the "leading individuals" in Travel law.

I have spoken at aviation conferences in London and Dubai and I accept appointments as arbitrator.
