Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP's Aviation Group has been listed among the best in the U.S. for 2011 by Legal 500. In recognizing Schnader, the editors noted that:
"[the] aviation practice group meshes it services with the firm's wider product liability practice and combines contentious and non-contentious capabilities. Its responsive litigators have an excellent reputation and have a caseload that encompasses litigation arising from aircraft accidents. It has been advising Cessna on complex product liability litigation nationally and is national counsel for Freescale Semiconductor and Motorola in relation to aviation electronics liability. Other clients include AIG Aviation, Chartis Aerospace Adjustment Services, Global Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, as well as Esterline and its subsidiary Leach International."
The editors also noted that clients recommend Ralph Wellington and J. Denny Shupe, emphasizing that "both are 'excellent, attentive and quick to respond'."
