Through the decades, we have provided sophisticated, intelligent counseling on the unique legal issues faced by small and large Transportation Industry companies in California and across the country.  Providing legal guidance to the Transportation Industry is one of our core practice areas. We have long-standing advisement and litigation experience in this area, and are often invited presenters at industry conferences nationwide.

Companies in the Transportation Industry face unique challenges. And we’ve been in the trenches fighting for our Transportation Industry clients in civil litigation, employment law disputes, contractual obligations disagreements, ownership issues, and battles with regulatory bodies.  Our vast experience has enabled us to provide an unmatched advantage to taxi companies, on-demand transportation services, limousine, shuttle and paratransit companies, public transportation providers, and governmental transit authorities.

Clients matter to us on a personal level. Understanding you and your business puts us in the best position to provide customized and practical legal advice, so we develop and maintain close relationships and take the time to learn the complexities of your business. In this way, we are best able to provide effective and efficient representation and well-developed business strategies for you.

We counsel about business formation and entity selection, regulatory compliance, and prepare up-to-date contracts, leases, and other service provider agreements that are designed to provide you the highest level of legal protection and tactical commercial goals.  We are eminently ready to handle all aspects of litigation, including class actions, personal injury claims, regulatory investigations and enforcement actions, or trademark and unfair business claims, and our track record speaks for itself.
