John Fry, co-founder of the drone practice at Morris, Manning & Martin, said: 'I’d compare it to the ‘Wild West’ days of the Internet, when people built businesses faster than the law could keep pace. Anyone can buy a drone, but they may have no idea of the legal challenges they could face, or create for others. We want to help companies and individuals who are on the cutting edge assess, avoid and overcome potential problems.'

Broad spectrum

He continued: 'The issues raised by a huge economic and technological wave touch on a very broad spectrum of legal practice areas that requires an interdisciplinary group of attorneys focused on all possible legal considerations.' Source: Morris Manning
