Our firm has extensive global experience representing contractors and suppliers on transportation infrastructure projects and transportation service agreements in all modes.
We have represented companies on project management, design, construction, operation, finance, and maintenance projects for intercity and metropolitan rail systems; electrified light rail and streetcar systems; subway and heavy rail systems; freight rail projects; urban and regional bus systems; paratransit or other specialized roadway transit services; highway, bridge, tunnel, and toll road projects; port and station facilities; and virtually every other type of transportation infrastructure project.
Our work includes assisting clients on entity formation and negotiation of joint venture agreements; procurement compliance and strategy issues and preparation of responsive bid materials; the negotiation and preparation of operation and service agreements, subcontractor agreements, financing agreements, and license and other regulatory applications; and in connection with all other commercial and legal elements of transportation infrastructure and service agreement transactions. We have assisted our clients in connection with all types of delivery models, including design-build procurements and transactions financed with project revenues or developer financing.
In conjunction with an extensive Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) regulatory practice, our lawyers have represented freight railroads, commuter railroads, railroad contractors, public transit agencies, and rail transit systems in proceedings before the FRA involving the scope and applicability of the federal railroad safety laws, regulatory waivers, quiet zones, agency rulemakings, compliance issues, enforcement matters, and penalty settlements. In fact, our lawyers have obtained more Shared Use Waiver petitions for public transit systems than any other law firm.
