Transportation Notes

Our transportation law group represents the interests of carriers in litigation of personal injury, property loss and commercial disputes. We also advise on insurance and regulatory issues and represent clients before the courts, agencies, tribunals and authorities with important jurisdiction over transportation undertakings.

In these Transportation Notes, we review a range of decisions, actions and events which impact on the interests of participants in the transportation sector. These include decisions of direct relevance, in the sense that the parties are participants in the industry, as well as decisions which raise issues of general importance, although not arising in a transportation context. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
