Pettibone Advises Space Tourists

Planning a visit to the nearest space station? Don't even think about going orbital without consulting this lawyer. Hot shot counsel for the world's first space tourists, Peter Pettibone, managing partner of the Moscow office of Hogan & Hartson and head of the firm’s Russia practice, who we also know and love as lead counsel for Dennis Tito, Mark Shuttleworth and Greg Olsen in their negotiations to fly to the International Space Station on Russia's Soyuz, has a new article in Legal Week (which I think of as sort of British version of The American Lawyer), in which he shares some of his formidable insights into legal issues for space tourists visiting ISS (who, of course, must currently travel on Russian rockets).

If you can afford the trip, you can afford to hire Peter. Next best thing to taking him into space with you. (I don't care how rich you are, you can't have everything.)
