Our dedicated team of lawyers has exceptional experience in all aspects of Scottish transport, and we are well-known for providing innovative solutions to client problems. We act with efficiency, ensuring our clients are responsive, reactive and well-informed about their options for development.
Our long track record in transport originates in rail, with our client history stretching back to pre-privatisation. We also have an impressive history in roads, and have advised clients on a number of large-scale construction projects, in addition to street lighting and roads maintenance contracts.
MacRoberts also has extensive ports and harbours experience ranging from operational issues to contractual terms and charges to the drafting of harbour orders. In addition, our team have also acted for airlines and fuel farm operators, and acted on behalf of the Scottish Ministers in their acquisition of Glasgow Prestwick Airport.
Scotland’s transport system is well developed and continues to evolve with improvements and upgrades across roads, rail, ports, harbours and the aviation industry. With a sector that is so far reaching and fundamental, significant contractual and regulatory complexities are inevitable. To this end, our clients in the transport sector require specialist advice, from lawyers that truly know and understand each and every element of the challenges they face.
The MacRoberts team has a comprehensive knowledge of the transport industry and its contractual and regulatory matrix – having advised on procurement, projects and operational issues concerning infrastructure, passenger and rail freight. Our lawyers regularly work on high-profile infrastructure and road projects throughout Scotland and have recently been involved in a number of large non-profit distributing projects.
Our team has advised on a comprehensive range of aviation, rail and light rail, roads, logistics, ports and harbours and maritime matters. We can advise you on a wide range of issues, including construction contracts, procurement issues, planning and environmental issues and compulsory purchase issues.
Our clients value not only our expertise and insight into the sector, but our commitment to pro-activity and straightforward advice.
