Our transport team has a breadth and depth of experience that ensures we provide clients with commercially robust, relevant and cost effective advice. 

the sector

The next few years will see the implementation of the Department for Transports business plan for the transport sector within the UK. The plan aims for the transport system to become more environmentally sound, safer and community focused as well as driving economic growth. These goals will clearly have a substantial impact on organisations within the industry and suppliers to those organisations.

Meeting these new targets, creating greener, more efficient products and services is both a challenge as well as an opportunity. These priorities will impact all aspects of the sector from regional and national road travel to aviation and high speed rail.

Watson Burton’s lawyers can provide you with advice which is relevant, commercial and pragmatic in this evolving environment.
