Practice/Industry Group Overview
Connell Foley has long been committed to effective and quality representation of transportation clients in connection with nearly every legal challenge, including personal injury, property damage, and cargo-related litigation. We are one of the few major regional law firms having offices in the New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania tri-state area with a dedicated transportation industry practice group. Our work includes regulatory, accident investigation and reconstruction, security compliance, customs, logistics, and hazardous material handling. Our clients are engaged in every mode of transportation, including automobiles, trucking, railroad, maritime and shipping, aviation, and intermodal.
The Transportation practice group is comprised of lawyers cutting across the firm’s multiple disciplines and provides services that cover:
- Personal injury and property damage litigation
- Serious injury investigations and serious injury and wrongful death litigation
- All aspects of aviation representation, from crisis situations involving crashes, security, and emergency issues to standard commercial disputes and corporate/transactional matters
Our experience with black box and data recording technologies, accident reconstruction and investigation techniques, and spoliation of evidence issues positions the firm to fully protect our transportation clients’ interests in all aspects of their businesses.
In addition to our extensive regulatory and trial experience, our group maintains a network of professionals – including accident reconstructionists– to assist in investigations and litigation as required.
We are committed to the most cost-efficient representation of our transportation clients. Our certified civil trial attorneys offer aggressive defense strategies to our transportation clients while remaining mindful of clients’ desires and needs for alternative dispute resolution opportunities.
Our lawyers are thought leaders in the field of transportation law, regularly participating in the Transportation Lawyers Association, the American Trucking Association, the Defense Research Institute, and the USLAW Network, Inc., among other professional associations. This enables our group to provide clients with comprehensive, up-to-date legal advice on virtually all transportation-related matters affecting their businesses.
