About the Blog

Baker McKenzie’s UAS Focus Team

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (also known as drones or “UAS”) is changing the way we do business.  The UAS framework in the U.S. and throughout the world is rapidly taking shape to integrate drones in our national airspace systems and allow organizations to exploit endless UAS applications to further their businesses.  The UAS Insights blog is a resource for the UAS community providing the latest developments and updates on the changing world of UAS. UAS Insights compiles legal analysis, thought leadership, news and background materials on the development and trajectory of UAS.  Contributors include lawyers focusing on aviation regulatory matters and other contributors with complementary practices across the globe.

Baker McKenzie’s UAS practice is the oldest in the U.S., and our Global Aviation and UAS team represents aviation and drone clients all over the world.   A wide variety of industries, including construction, agriculture, mineral and mining, nuclear, search & rescue, mapping, real estate, insurance, and news media—to name a few–are using drone applications to further their businesses, often enhancing safety and reducing costs.   Among the team’s clients are those launching high-altitude drones, entrepreneurs ready to launch self-piloted aerial, corporate clients using drones in everyday business applications, as well as those who are interested in preventing others from using drones over their property.  We provide advice and guidance on how to navigate UAS laws, regulations, and policies and how to make the best out of drone applications.
