Briggs and Morgan understands our clients' business regarding legal disputes and regulatory compliance in the field of transportation. We represent both transportation service providers and shippers across the country. One of our key litigators formerly served as general counsel for a national diversified transportation and warehousing business.
The combined experience of our attorneys in transportation law has often proven invaluable. No issue or question will likely arise in this area that our team has not seen before through firsthand experience in our clients' businesses. Consequently, we understand our clients face business problems and need solutions that best meet each client’s business objectives.
Since significant deregulation of the transportation industry in the 1990s, less government oversight has been available to define the rights of parties. Shippers and transportation service providers now have increased responsibility to establish and enforce the terms of their relationships through written contracts. Briggs has represented motor carriers, rail carriers, surface freight forwarders, air freight forwarders, household goods carriers, property brokers and warehousemen. Our shipper clients include a number of high-profile large retailers and medium-to-large manufacturers of finished goods.
Briggs’ experience in advocating clients' causes has involved transportation contracts, freight loss and damage claims, insurance, employment and labor relations, warehousing, equipment leasing, undercharge claim litigation and regulatory compliance, including U.S. Department of Transportation and state safety standards.
