The global COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the rail industry in ways that are unprecedented, with both the passenger and freight sectors now operating in a different landscape. Greenberg Traurig’s Rail Group recognizes that many train operators, rail infrastructure owners, rolling stock manufacturers, lessors, financiers, and other stakeholders may face complex decisions every day involving their operations, investments, capital expenditure, risk management, supplier and customer disputes and other legal and business challenges – generally involving a regulatory regime specific to the particular jurisdiction.
Our attorneys have substantial knowledge and technical experience across the industry. Our Rail Group comprises a team of dedicated attorneys across our governmental affairs, environmental, regulatory, corporate, finance, tax, employment, antitrust/competition, intellectual property, litigation and insolvency practices to provide a sector-focused offering.
We are here to help clients navigate the issues, opportunities, and complexities they face, including accessing liquidity, purchasing assets at attractive prices, taking advantage of financing opportunities, reorganising operations, and advising on restructuring or insolvency options.
