Transportation Law & Logistics

Our transportation law and logistics practice recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of the legal issues faced by users and providers of transportation and distribution services. We bring together expertise in laws relating to warehousing and goods-in-transit, extensive experience in the corporate, employment, real estate, and environmental laws that impact on a company's supply chain and unmatched practical hands-on experience. We regularly represent our transportation and logistics clients in transactions, dispute resolution, counseling and regulatory compliance.
