Transport, Traffic & Infrastructure

With an interdisciplinary team of lawyers that has many years of experience in transport, traffic and infrastructure industries, we offer our clients professional and comprehensive advisory services.

These services exceed each individual area of specialist expertise and take into account the economic and legal interconnections that occur in practice. The competencies summarized in the Practice Group range from traditional transport and logistics law and transportation insurance law to comprehensive legal advice on infrastructure projects and project management up to maritime law, including ship financing.

Particularly the higher rate of European and international regulations increases the legal requirements on companies in the transportation and logistics industries and in the public sector. By providing comprehensive advice at an early stage, we can help you to organize and implement projects in an optimum manner and to avoid conflicts.
