Prevent closing of local airport
Archer Norris represented local business interests when County officials and competing developers attempted to close a local airport. Our clients were among the largest owners of commercial and office space in the region. They benefited from the proximity of the airport to their holdings and easy access to private aviation facilities. Archer Norris attorneys identified significant contractual, public policy and legal arguments against the closing of the airport. Working collaboratively with our clients, Archer Norris attorneys met and communicated with members of U.S. Congress and representatives of federal agencies, appeared before the County Board of Supervisors and coordinated the work of citizens' groups supporting the airport. The County ultimately abandoned its efforts and the airport remains open.
