Anne Harris, Partner, projects team

The operation of railways is frequently subject to a lot of legislative, regulatory and licensing requirements. We have experience in creating these and as importantly we have a lot of experience in helping clients identify which of these requirements are relevant to them and helping them know what they need to do in order to comply with those requirements.

We have a lot of experience in the day-to-day operations in the rail industry and that really is across a very wide types of different types of area, so one of the types of things we get involved in in the kinds of countries where the operation of the infrastructure is separate from the operation of the trains themselves is negotiating and drafting the terms of access to the infrastructure for Railtrack itself or stations and for depots and that’s something that we have a lot of experience in.

At the other end of the spectrum there’s a lot of interest in passenger rail at the moment, increasingly in relation to smart ticketing and other types of communication with clients and customers and we spend a lot of our time advising clients in relation to those areas too.
