The New York Times Quotes Gardere Partner Peter McLauchlan

11 October 2011 News

Peter A. McLauchlan, a litigation partner in Gardere's Houston office and one of the Firm's premier maritime lawyers, was recently asked to contribute to a New York Times article written about airlines' authority to remove disruptive passengers from flights.

Given the prevalence of social media, passengers are able to quickly spread their frustration across the web, which has happened in a number of recent cases. According to Mr. McLauchlan, "If you're going to push the limits, you're going to run the risk of being denied travel, because it's all up to the cabin crew or the gate agents. They have a nice laundry list of what could be offensive to other passengers, and airline safety gives them lots of cover." The full article may be viewed here.

Mr. McLauchlan has significant experience in transportation law and international contracts. He is integral to the Firm's maritime and aviation finance practice.
