The Widerman Malek, PL UAS/Drone law group provides legal assistance to companies providing products and services in the rapidly growing area of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly known as drones. Our UAS/Drone law group provides individuals and businesses with advice and assistance related to the commercial and recreational use of drones. Our attorneys are available to assist recreational drone and small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) operators navigate and comply with the evolving and complex rules established by the Federal Aviation Administration. We help businesses obtain the “Section 333” exemptions that are required for all commercial UAS use. We work with businesses to develop contracts related to the operations of drones. And we provide guidance and advice regarding compliance with the laws and regulations controlling the use of an UAS for commercial and recreational purposes. Under current FAA regulations, released in late 2015, all drones over 0.55 pounds (250 grams) are required to be registered and operated in strict compliance with new FAA rules. Individuals and businesses failing to comply may face civil and criminal penalties, including fines up to $250,000.00. The members of the group include Attorney Scott Widerman, a licensed pilot experienced with FAA rules and regulations; Attorney Ed Kinberg, an administrative and regulatory lawyer with over 30 years of experience in solving challenging issues involving federal agencies, and Attorney Kelly G. Swartz, a patent attorney with a computer engineering background and experience with autonomous vehicles. Visit the UAS/Drone FAQ page for more information.
