Since its founding in March 2001, Alimonti Law Offices, PC, (ALO) has focused its practice on serving the litigation needs of the aviation community. Since then, ALO has grown from a “one man shop” to an internationally recognized team of lawyers and consultants. Our worldwide clients including airlines, flight schools, fixed base operators, manufacturers, repair stations, charter operators, and their respective insurers.
Our litigation experience has led to “instructions” as consultants and lecturers on claim prevention and product integrity as well as numerous aviation-related transactions. Our approach is simple: find common solutions to common problems - even in an “adversarial process”. Our reputation for zealous representation, candor, and the highest ethical standards enables us to efficiently manage the most difficult and emotional claims. Founder Rick Alimonti is the immediate past co-chair of the American Bar Association’s (Section of Litigation) Committee on Aviation Litigation. He is the first person to twice be honored with this appointment. He is the founder of this committee’s June CLE conference in New York, now completing its eighteenth year. Over the past several years, Rick has been increasingly called upon to present and moderate on various issues related to aviation litigation, with a particular emphasis on ethics.
In 2012, Alimonti Mediation Services was launched to service those clients with product liability, aviation law and commercial disputes. Rick is a member of the Southern District of New York’s mediation panel and was recently appointed to the SDNY Mediator Advisory Committee. He presents nationally and internationally on the mediation process.
