Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

In a city like Austin which recently moved to the #1 city in the U.S. for startups, cutting edge technology is mainstream. From South by Southwest (SXSW), which brings together the convergence of music, independent films and emerging technologies, to tech startups and larger enterprise companies, Austin is uniquely diversified to meet the future needs of Unmanned Aircraft Systems/Drones (UAS/Drones) manufacturers, stakeholders and emerging industry players. The same might be said about other cities across Texas with strong research and development hubs. Throughout Texas, UAS/Drones are utilized in many different industries by McGinnis Lochridge’s clients, including: Agriculture, Oil and Gas, Real Estate, Construction, Mapping, Photography, Recreation and Entertainment.

McGinnis Lochridge, one of Austin’s largest headquartered firms (Austin Business Journal, 1/22/2016), and its office in Houston, serves all of Texas, and nationally across many industries and practices.  With particular expertise in regulatory issues and navigating potential conflicts between Texas and federal law, the Firm has launched http://droneadvocates.com/, a blog where we can share updates about how this now mainstream technology is affecting both the commercial and private sectors.
