St. Louis, MO (April 14, 2014) — Given the emerging UAS industry, its projected $80 billion-plus economic impact over the next decade, evolving regulatory environment, and Sandler Law’s experience and related knowledge – Sandler Law announces the launch of its comprehensive and client focused Drone Law Practice. Our Drone Law Practice is a natural extension of our long-standing experience in international business and technology licensing transactions, export and trade controls, and privacy matters.
As recently as March 2014, the UAS emerging marketplace is being impacted by an Administrative Judge’s decision overturning the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) policy prohibiting commercial UAS use. The velocity of economic activity is increasing because of UAS’ versatility and application in agriculture, land surveying, photography, and film industries, recognizance and rescue missions. The technology has a growing international demand. In fact, CBS featured the technology in its 60 Minutes Drones Over America.
