Transport Counsel PC is a Washington, DC-based law firm that specializes in representing companies in the railroad and work truck industries. Our attorneys have an average of almost 25 years of experience representing these industry groups. As a result, we understand the business and legal challenges faced by our clients and we are able to work creatively to find solutions to transactional, regulatory and labor-based issues.
We speak the languages spoken by railroaders and truck upfitters and dealers. Reflecting our high degree of specialization, our learning curve is short when working with companies in our core fields. We do not hold ourselves out as legal generalists because we are not generalists. Instead, we provide highly focused representation to companies that are seeking to buy or sell short line railroads, face issues at the Surface Transportation Board, need advice in a federal excise tax audit, or are fending off a vehicle recall demand from NHTSA. In these and other issues unique to the railroad and work truck industries, Transport Counsel provides real world advice based on decades of experience.
