Wragge & Co

Jane Pittaway and James Gordon head this 30-lawyer team, which represents a pool of expertise in crucial areas including alliancing, partnering and outsourcing transactions, PFI and other government projects, defence procurement, aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul, supply chain management and resolution of disputes concerning such matters.

Such is the commitment to the industry it serves, several of the team are International Air Transport Association (IATA) trained and many honed their commercial understanding through secondments to British Airways and what was the Defence Procurement Agency of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), now part of Defence Equipment and Support. Industry jargon is well known to us and we have a comprehensive understanding of an industry adapting to the pressures of competition and consolidation, in addition to potential spending cuts.
