          Rail

          We’ve been advising and representing train operating companies and rail freight carriers, on the legal elements of insurance claims, since privatisation. 

          We understand that performance targets and margins, public scrutiny and escalating insurance claim expenditure, changing franchise periods and government review present daily pressures - as does an industry-wide commitment to delivering an excellent safety record.  

          Spanning England and Scotland our expertise ranges from the defence of public liability and employer's liability claims to the provision of advice and representation in relation to catastrophic injury claims. From rail regulatory advice and representation to rolling stock damage claims.

          We’re recognised as one of the leading, specialist teams in the rail sector. We stand out because of our deep understanding of the practical challenges you face and the things that are important to you and the travelling public.
