Rail sector


Transport carrier rails play a decisive role for mobility and the logistics of the future. Many companies are searching for ways of integrating rails more extensively into their logistics concepts than previously. This mode of transport is also becoming increasingly important in passenger transport.

Our rail competence team assits well-known, globally operating companies and advises them on all relevant legal issues such as contract drafting, financing, M&A, damages, litigation, transport, locomotive & wagon, accidents and personnel secondment. Railway-specific tasks arising from the areas of contract-awarding, regulation and supervision are efficiently solved at the highest professional level.

The members of our team have specialised, cross-disciplinary legal expertise, paired with a sound understanding of carrier transport rails and their technical basis. Team leader Klaus-Peter Langenkamp – special counsel for transport and freight-forwarding law – has been familiar with the sector for two decades and actively assists with the privatisation of carrier transport rails both in Germany and also in Europe. The team delivers competent concepts and advice strategies which are the focal point of our clients' financial success. Of Counsel Dr. Frank Wilting, special counsel for transport and freight-forwarding law and administrative law, and Counsel Gisela Hebrant, LL.M. have particular expertise in administrative law issues and represent our clients in dealings with authorities such as the Federal Railway Authority (Eisenbahnbundesamt).
