Quality and experience in the rail sector

Rail is undergoing a renaissance of growth. Technological advances have made it a mode of transport perfectly fitted to meet key passenger and freight requirements of growing economies. However, transport law issues are often complex and rarely exist in isolation. In addition, across the Middle East the rail industry operates in a unique legal environment that requires expert advice.

The Iraq offices can offer local transport knowledge, crucial contacts and a thorough understanding of working in politically sensitive countries and emerging markets. Many of our transport lawyers have worked in-house and understand the issues you face. We listen to what you want and then deliver a tailored service that meets your objectives.
