The New York Times Quotes Gardere Partner Peter McLauchlan


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 mMaritime and aviation finance practice.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
