Global law firm Clyde & Co has appointed renowned aviation law expert, Professor Ron Bartsch of UNSW, to assist the firm's Global Drones Strategy Group in providing expert policy, standards and regulatory advice as it relates to drones and other autonomous vehicles.

 

Maurice Thompson, Partner and Chairman of Clyde & Co's Global Drones Strategy Group, says:

 

"Professor Bartsch comes to Clyde & Co with a wealth of experience in drone policy, standards and regulation and will complement the skillset of our partners already advising in respect of the explosion of drones issues across all our sectors,"

 

Professor Bartsch is a renowned aviation law academic and has had a long career working with airlines, insurers, regulators and government bodies on aviation and drones policy. Last week, Professor Bartsch was instrumental in securing a contract to develop a world-first regulatory framework for the operation of drones throughout 10 South Pacific Island nations.

 

"We've already made significant in-roads into becoming the 'go-to' firm for drones related matters globally and the addition of Professor Bartsch is a real coup for the firm," Thompson said.
