February Jurisdictional Update – South Africa

Update provided by Hayden Davies with Webber Wentzel.

  • Working on the ongoing dispute of who is responsible for performing hold baggage screening at the primary South African airports. 
  • Acting for Swissport in a license dispute with Airports Company South Africa. 
  • Acting for a well-known South African airline that’s in dispute with the Air Services Licensing Council that is threatening to suspend their license because of alleged contravention of that license. 


It is important to us to have attorneys in foreign jurisdictions with aircraft and/or aviation finance experience.  We have been happy with our L2b lawyers.

I trust Ulrich’s judgment – his advice is both legally on point and commercially savvy. In reality, Ulrich functions more like an in-house attorney, since he acts on our behalf with very little supervision or direction required.

I enjoy working with Khachaturyan (of Asters) he is easy to work with and he is “quick to respond. – Chambers Global

I am fortunate to have found Ulrich. He is one of a select group of outside attorneys on whom I absolutely rely.

Extremely responsive, very helpful and highly knowledgeable: they understand the cultural issues faced by foreign firms – Santamarina y Steta

The L2b Aviation tax booklet has been so helpful to me and my practice!

-Andrea Villa, Harper Meyer, USA (Miami)
