YK Law Launches Space Law Practice Group

by | Apr 30, 2020 | Firm News

YK Law LLP is thrilled to announce the launch of its Space Law Practice Group, led by its partners Alexandra Levin and Laurel Grass. Outer space is truly the last frontier for human expansion. Private enterprises including Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Boeing and Sierra Nevada Corp., among others, have achieved technological breakthroughs in space travel thanks to their substantial financial investments in this industry. While public bodies like the United Nations, NASA, the Australian Space Agency, the Israel Space Agency, China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation and the recently launched U.S. Space Force have attempted to support, lead and regulate the private sector, national and international rules, regulations and treaties related to outer space are still an evolving yet exciting and innovative body of law that YK Law is excited to develop in partnership with academia, NGOs, the private sector and public institutions.

YK Law’s Space Law practice group advises clients on space systems, space travel, asteroid mining, environmental space protection, debris removal, space law and policy, application of other innovative technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence, and real estate considerations including asset, property and facility management, insurance concerns, property valuation, leasing, licensing for space navigation, tracking and travel, intellectual property, environmental and heritage matters.

As such, YK Law is supporting the RMIT School of Property, Construction and Project Management on its inaugural Property Rights and Real Estate Interests in Outer Space Virtual Conference on May 1, 2020 starting at 8:45 am AEST / 6:45 am CST (April 30, 2020 at 6:45 pm EDT). The conference is sponsored by the Space Industry Association of Australia and is supported by the Sir Lawrence Wackett Centre and the Australian Property Institute. Speaker presentations will be followed by an ideas hackathon. This conference provides an opportunity to network and share ideas and to network in an old area of concern, and how it relates to outer space. Register for free by clicking here.
