Heil Presents “Attack of the Drones” at IDC Symposium


John Heil presented "Attack of the Drones - Update on Emerging Law" at the 2016 Illinois Defense Counsel (IDC) and Illinois Insurance Association (IIA) Spring Symposium on March 18 in St. Louis. In the legal profession, attorneys are already assisting clients in navigating the FAA's complicated waiver and authorization process and representing drone makers in intellectual property disputes. Other pending issues include personal injury and property damage actions, insurance coverage disputes, and constitutional claims. John's presentation provided basics on the current state of the evolving legal environment and suggestions where drone law may be headed in the future.
