Mary Dow

Mary’s practice includes general commercial and civil litigation with a focus on class actions.

Mary has represented several foreign and domestic air carriers, including British Airways, Iberia, Lufthansa, and United, in consumer class actions involving the enforcement of European Union regulations in the United States, and currently represents LOT Polish Airlines in class action litigation arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

With over a decade of experience, Mary’s work also includes representing air carriers and other aviation stakeholders in complex tort litigation arising from mass air disasters and general aviation accidents.  She currently advises clients on issues relating to the Boeing 737 MAX and represents the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association in litigation arising from the grounding of that aircraft.

In 2011, Mary spent three months on secondment with a major international airline and gained invaluable experience handling commercial and regulatory issues from the in-house perspective.

Mary graduated from Fordham Law School in 2009, where she served on the Fordham Moot Court Editorial Board and the Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal.

Mary is a member of New York’s Women’s Bar Association and American Bar Association.
