TRANSPORTATION

Our experience translates into the guidance you need to efficiently and effectively partner with government on transportation projects.

When It Comes to the Transportation Industry, We’ve Got You Covered.

The transportation industry includes mass transit, air couriers, trucking companies, railroads, shipping entities and other service companies. Among our transportation clients are proud to include one of the nation’s premier railroad companies and a global technology leader and supplier to the railroad industry.

Government Relations

Our government relations professionals can work with you to further and protect your interests. We have worked with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the U.S. government on a broad range of issues to develop positive transportation solutions. In fact, one of our transportation team members served on President George W. Bush’s Transportation Transition Team and has also served on a task force for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

We can strategically position you before administrators and key decision-makers at all levels – from project managers to cabinet members – within the appropriate governmental agencies, with the goal of enhancing your profile and establishing your credibility. 

Our experience also includes counseling carriers on hours of service issues, labor protective conditions imposed by the Surface Transportation Board and the preemptive force of federal statutes to invalidate state and local regulation.

Railway Labor Act (RLA) Litigation

We handle representation disputes, major and minor disputes, regulated transactions, labor protective conditions and matters before Presidential Emergency Boards. We also advise carriers on matters involving the complex relationship between the RLA and other federal and state laws. Our attorneys have litigated cases to enforce the RLA's major dispute resolution procedures, and we've represented carriers in common-situs labor disputes involving both RLA and National Labor Relations Act issues. 

Our Cross-disciplinary Approach

We are highly collaborative, both with our clients and within our firm. Our approach to handling your matter means that you have direct access to all of the legal services offered by our firm, which covers just about any scenario you might encounter.
