Benefits:

Daily reports abound of mass airline delays & cancellations, major turbulence seriously injuring passengers, parts falling off planes, aircraft rapidly falling thousands of feet, and passengers stuck on the tarmac for hours. At the same time, passenger traffic has reached record levels with nearly five billion passengers expected to travel globally this year alone according to the International Air Transport Association. There is an unprecedented need today for counsel to represent passengers and airlines in this quickly growing and important practice. A complex maze of state, federal, and international regulations has created a complicated web of evolving rules and procedures involving all aspects of the industry from cancellations, delays and lost luggage to passengers rights and serious injuries. Attend this course to learn how to effectively recover for clients and defend against claims. The Rossdale faculty for this seminar features three leading authorities in the field. Registration includes online access to written course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the program.

Biography of Seminar Faculty:

1. Erin R. Applebaum has dedicated her career to seeking justice for people harmed during air travel. As a partner in Kreindler’s aviation practice, she represents the interests of passengers severely injured or killed in general aviation accidents and commercial airline disasters. Ms. Applebaum is considered by many in the aviation community to be a foremost authority on litigating claims governed by the Montreal Convention, the international treaty on commercial air travel. In addition to her personal caseload of Montreal Convention accidents, Ms. Applebaum’s major cases at Kreindler include the Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 catastrophic engine failure and the Liberty Helicopters doors-off tour helicopter crash in the East River. Ms. Applebaum has played a key role in Kreindler’s fight against Boeing in the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302/737 MAX litigation. She was selected by the court as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee for the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 cases and has been instrumental in the victims’ families’ effort to overturn the Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) between Boeing and the Department of Justice (DOJ). She is a highly sought-after speaker on topics ranging from recent developments in aviation law to the prosecution of foreign air crashes. Ms. Applebaum has given interviews on aviation topics to the Wall Street Journal, the Seattle Times, the New York Post, Reuters, NewsNation, CBS2 New York, SuperLawyers, The Points Guy, and the Corporate Crime Reporter.

2. Gene Kaskiw is a Partner at Worthe Hanson & Worthe. Mr. Kaskiw focuses his practice on the defense of commercial airlines, as well as both fixed- and rotary-wing general aviation operators and component part manufacturers in personal injury and wrongful death litigation in state and federal courts throughout the United States. He is frequently involved in products and premises liability litigation, aircraft liens, cargo claims, insurance defense, the Montreal Convention, vendor agreements, fraud claims against airlines, federal preemption and regulatory matters. Mr. Kaskiw is a graduate of Columbia University in the City of New York and Rutgers School of Law.

3. Timothy M. Ravich is Senior Counsel at Tressler LLP, where he concentrates his practice in the areas of aviation, product and general civil litigation. Recognized as one of only 50 lawyers qualified as a Board-Certified Expert in the area of aviation law, Mr. Ravich specializes in transactional and regulatory matters related to the ownership, maintenance and utilization of aircraft, airports and airspace. He provides legal representation to a diverse range of clients in the aviation industry, covering a wide spectrum of matters. His clientele has included operators from both commercial and general aviation sectors, including Part 121 and 135 carriers. He has also worked with aircraft and engine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies, airmen and aviation insurers. Tim has counseled and advocated for clients on various issues, from matters related to the purchase, sale and utilization of aircraft under international law, such as the Cape Town Convention, to airport law, accident litigation and passenger claims arising under the Airline Deregulation Act, Montreal and Warsaw Conventions, Title 49 U.S.C. and Part 14 C.F.R. He also has provided expert testimony and advised public and private sector clients, including U.S. presidential campaigns, members of the United States Congress, local, state and international governments, law firms, airlines, aircraft manufacturers and operators and airmen. In addition to representing traditional or conventional aviation clients, Mr. Ravich also represents startups, with a particular emphasis on emerging regulatory areas such as unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or drones, advanced air mobility (AAM) and space law. Notably, Mr. Ravich served as General Counsel of a multinational UAS and data company, playing a pivotal role in securing one of the first authorizations for commercial drone aircraft operations worldwide. Having worked at top-tier business litigation firms, Mr. Ravich also brings extensive experience in handling complex commercial matters on behalf of Fortune 500 corporations as “first chair” in class action litigation and products liability cases, both at the state and federal levels.
