Rail

Our rail team not only understands the complexities and challenges faced by the industry but shares its enthusiasm for a bright future for our railways.

Transport and Infrastructure

We regularly advise the UK rail industry’s major players and can help you with the law, strategy, public policy, public affairs and communications issues relating to:

Infrastructure Enhancements

We have been involved with virtually every contemporary railway and light railway project in England and offer the very best experience of major project promotion.

Our specialist team can guide you through a myriad of issues including:

Whether you are a network owner / operator, a train or freight operating company, a local authority, a PTE, a government agency, a developer or a heritage railway, we are ready to help you plan and deliver your railway project.

Industry Reform

Rail policy is entering a period of change that is, arguably, the most significant since privatisation. Not only is there a significant emphasis on cost reduction but an increase in new forms of relationships. With our specialist public policy and public affairs practitioners we can advise you on the evolving policy landscape, its implications for your business and how you can seek to contribute to this process.

Employment and Industrial Relations

Industrial action can have serious implications for an employer’s business and reputation. Preventing it requires rapid specialist legal action by experienced lawyers. Equally, protecting employers against the ever changing demands of employment laws demands robust and practical legal advice set in the context of the industry.

Our recent work includes:

  • Advising on the TUPE implications of changes to railway franchises; and
  • Advising on numerous employment and industrial relations issues for ATOC, various train operating companies and network operators

We can also advise on the implications of Brexit.
