Transport

From transport infrastructure to regulation & commercial

We advise many businesses and organisations operating in the transport sector, in areas including road, haulage, rail and shipping.

From advising on major road infrastructure projects to the merger and acquisition of businesses operating in the transport sector, our multi-disciplinary team draws from specialists in every area of law to offer a comprehensive service.

The breadth of our support to clients includes matters relating to procurement and competition, regulatory and compliance, banking & finance, commercial contracts and sensitive commercial matters, and employment law. 

We operate in both the public and private sectors. Our clients include transport operators and agencies, funders, local authorities, hauliers and freight forwarders. We also have extensive experience in shipping and marine transport, particularly in relation to ferry operations.

Our team has also been part of, and advised on bidding to run two of the major rail franchises in Scotland.
