Our barristers have a longstanding reputation for their expertise within the transport industry.

Our experience spans the aviation, maritime, road and rail sectors and includes the initial construction and creation of infrastructure, day-to-day operational aspects of the transport industry and in-service technical failures.

Almost every mode of transport either has or is seeing a rapid adoption of new technology at every infrastructural layer. This inevitably leads to disputes involving highly complex technical evidence as well as difficult issues of law. We are particularly well placed to deal with such disputes owing to our deep expertise in the technology space.

Transport projects present unique challenges, often owing to the inherent link between the provision of transport and national government bodies. The dynamics of no two disputes are the same. We have both domestic and international experience of transport disputes with some of our most recent work arising from London and other major UK cities, mainland Europe, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Oman and Doha in the Middle East, Ghana and Tanzania in Africa and China.

We regularly represent and advise clients on disputes relating to a number of transport specific issues including:

  • Automotives
  • Autonomous vehicles
  • Aviation and airline operators
  • Digitisation and new technology
  • Movement of people and commodities
  • New transport systems including HS2 / Queen Elizabeth line
  • PFI road projects
  • Rail infrastructure
  • Regulation
  • Shipping and international trade
  • Safety-critical software
  • Technology underpinning smart cities, including blockchain, IoT and advanced data analytics

For further information in relation to our transport expertise, please contact Paul Bloxham, Billy Griffiths or James Tanner.
