Keeping business on track.

Husch Blackwell attorneys represent rail carriers in a broad range of complex matters involving compliance, safety and accountability, labor and employment, cargo liability and violations of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act (HMTA).

We work closely with freight forwarders, light-rail transit systems and transportation brokers to resolve challenges and capitalize on opportunities involving contracts, easements and railroad right-of-ways, environmental, personal injury and wrongful death, product liability, rail car leasing, Railroad Retirement Tax appeals and toxic torts.
