Flying High: Firm Protects Gulfstream’s Dispute Resolution Policy

HunterMaclean has worked with Gulfstream Aerospace, the world’s most technologically advanced business-jet aircraft manufacturer, since the company moved to Savannah in 1967.  The Firm serves as an extension of Gulfstream’s accomplished in-house legal team, providing expert counsel on an ongoing basis.

Over the years HunterMaclean has successfully represented the international aerospace company in matters including corporate finance, sales tax audits, ad valorem appeals, employment law and insurance disputes.

HunterMaclean has helped Gulfstream implement a proactive approach to employment-related issues, putting in place streamlined policies and procedures as well as regular preventative counseling. When those policies have been challenged by employees, the Firm has successfully defended Gulfstream in court.

In one landmark case (Caley v. Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.), HunterMaclean attorneys secured rulings in both the District Court and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals upholding and enforcing the policy Gulfstream enacted to resolve employment-related disputes. The significance of this case continues to resonate today, setting an important precedent for companies nationwide regarding arbitration and dispute resolution policies.
