The experience to help clients manage every aspect of acquiring, financing, warehousing, transporting, and protecting vessels, vehicles, and fleets.
Whether our clients are transporting cargo on land, at sea, or by air, the McGlinchey Transportation and Logistics team has both the industry and legal knowledge to address every aspect of handling, warehousing, processing, transporting, and protecting it. Members of our team represent businesses from across the transportation and logistics industry. We have advised aviation, maritime and fluvial transport companies, truckload, less-than truckload, heavy-haul, open-deck and specialty trucking carriers, logistics services and intermodal providers, commercial auto providers and auto dealerships, rail transport companies, equipment manufacturers and lessors, financial and insurance companies and brokers, as well as other entities serving the industry.
Our team works efficiently to bring practical legal and business advice to transportation and logistics companies. We collaborate with clients to problem solve day-to-day business issues as well as address industry trends, including new technologies affecting business models and operations. We understand the array of state and federal laws and regulations that affect commercial auto, trucking, rail and maritime casualty, and other claims. And even though technology often moves faster than insurers to meet the business needs of the industry, our deep knowledge of the business and regulatory landscape enables us to ensure that clients get the protections they need to manage risk effectively.
As a firm recognized nationally for our work serving clients in the consumer financial services industry, we bring deep knowledge of the financial technologies (FinTech) at the heart of the online vehicle companies which are partnering with financing and insurance entities to manage the sale, leasing, and insuring of vehicles for consumers. We advise clients on the regulatory compliance issues associated with FinTech as well as the full range of business law issues, including labor and employment, contracts and transactions, and dispute resolution – and we do so with a practical, business-focused perspective. As one client told Chambers USA, McGlinchey lawyers are “. . . equally talented at spotting potential business issues as they are in spotting truly legal issues” and “. . . are also very practical when they provide guidance – it is easy to follow and to understand and share with our business folks.”
