AWG is pleased to announce the appointment of Holland & Knight LLP (H&K) as its supporting international counsel, effective 1 January 2021.

AWG has had an exceptionally close relationship with H&K for over 25 years, and has turned to that firm for support on some of its most important and complex work over that period. That includes, most recently, fundamental tasks relating to the interpretation of, and compliance with, the Cape Town Convention and formulation and advocacy of principles relating to airline restructurings in the COVID-19 context.

Jeffrey Wool will continue his role as secretary general of AWG on secondment from H&K, where he has been appointed its director of international law and policy.
