A Better Partnership

Aerospace and Defense and Government Services


Warner’s clients within the aerospace, defense and government services industries look to us for legal counsel and an effective partnership that provides a comprehensive approach to regulations and policy directives, as well as the unique corporate challenges they face. Our interdisciplinary practice leverages our deep understanding of both government and corporate law, as well as transactional, technical, regulatory and compliance, financial, environmental and litigation experience to provide cohesive strategic and tactical solutions that meet the specialized needs of the aerospace, defense and government services industries.
Warner’s Aerospace & Defense and Government Services Industry Group is on top of the trends shaping this market and recognizes that the global A&D landscape is undergoing significant disruption driven by innovation and technological transformation as well as geopolitical competitiveness, emerging opportunities and threats, and cross-sector growth through increased mergers and acquisition activity and consolidation. Warner speaks the language of government and the Department of Defense (DoD). We understand that U.S. military services are transitioning to multi-domain operations, which will require the seamless integration across land, air, sea, space and cyber. The ability to link resources and capabilities, particularly as emerging technologies evolve and the DoD changes its investment strategies, will revolutionize how the industry operates in the 21st century.
Warner’s team includes industry-leading attorneys and strategic advisors who represent clients across a wide range of local, regional and international markets, including organizations looking to expand into or provide goods and services to the U.S. A&D industry. We put clients first, and our industry and practice groups work cohesively across the firm to provide the best resources and expertise to support you. However, our connections run deeper than our name. If your needs warrant supplementary expertise, we have the national and global connections to support any idea, goal and target.
We regularly work with leaders across active segments of the sector, including privately held companies, emerging and start-up ventures, middle market, and public global enterprises. Our work in the A&D market leverages the expertise and synergies of our 15 industry groups and over 25 specialized practice areas to provide cost-effective, timely and focused strategic, operational and legal counsel.
Our goal is to provide cohesive strategic and tactical solutions that minimize client risk and exposure while maximizing what makes us valuable to clients: availability, responsiveness, industry knowledge, cost‑effectiveness and quality legal work.
