Rail & Infrastructure

The rail sector has a complex and evolving contractual and regulatory matrix and DWF's rail team can guide you around the key issues.

How we can help

Understanding your legal commercial needs

Our team of rail experts has advised on passenger rail franchise procurement and delivery, infrastructure bills and delivery contracts, track access and regulatory reviews, new and refurbished rolling stock, rail freight terminals and grants, tram schemes, station and maintenance depot developments and leases, retailing, ticketing and transport integration.

Our team has also handled contract disputes, high value claims for personal injury, line trespass and for damaged rolling stock, as well as HR, trades union and rail pension scheme matters. In the UK, we have experience in BTP, RAIB and ORR investigations, incident management and crisis investigations following serious incidents or near-misses on the railway.

Our international team provides decisive, expert direction in an approachable way. We are recognised for our exemplary service, understanding your commercial needs as well as the complex legal framework surrounding your industry. Praised for our innovative and energetic solutions, we pride ourselves on our collaborative approach in applying them.
