Transportation & Logistics


Companies plan their cross-border flows of goods down to the smallest detail. This requires not only the selection of the right means of transport; it is also increasingly important to identify transport and logistics law risks and to structure contractual relationships accordingly.

Our team provides assistance to logistic companies based in Germany and abroad in connection with all transportation law matters. This applies in particular to freight transport by rail, road, air and multimodal transport chains. Our team has special know-how in all questions of rail, freight forwarding and air freight law. Here we represent well-known, globally operating companies and also take care of all permit law issues. This also includes administrative proceedings before the Federal Network Agency.

Moreover, we represent goods consignors in connection with problems with carriers engaged by them, for example with regard to loss of or damage to goods. For transportation insurers as well as for goods consignors we conduct contentious disputes before national and international courts and arbitration tribunals.

We can assist you in these areas:
