Litigation

 

We get it. Our transportation and logistics clients typically do not want to fight. But when disputes arise, we hold a steady wheel to navigate through to a resolution. Our litigation and dispute resolution practice covers every phase and form of a dispute—from pre-suit analysis and negotiation through to appeal. Mediation and arbitration are common to our practice. We actively seek creative and conciliatory ways to settle suits and manage arbitration or litigation.

Taylor & Associates approaches problems and disputes with a business mindset. Our attorneys have experience themselves as business owners, stakeholders, and seasoned practitioners that has shown us the importance of a resolution-oriented, budget-conscious practice. We get the legal and business needs of the transportation and logistics industry.

Our clients are unique, facing issues only seen within the fields of transportation, logistics, and supply chain. Among those we represent are:

  • Domestic and international motor carriers
  • Freight brokers
  • Freight network companies
  • Corporate and leased fleets
  • Warehouse and shipping facilities
  • Logistics service providers
  • Institutional investors
  • Product distributors and manufacturers
  • Capacity providers

Transportation and logistics clients don’t just face transportation problems. They are businesses, and they face a host of issues. We handle these diverse matters, familiar with the industry knowledge that can make or break a dispute. Within the transportation field, we handle questions involving freight charges, cargo damage, contracts of carriage, tariffs, freight rates, and carrier liability. Complex legislative and judicial rules govern transportation disputes, including the Carmack Amendment and federal preemption. Beyond this, we handle a variety of domestic and international disputes involving contract and tort, third party insurance, insurance coverage, employee/employer relationships, personal injury, premises liability, products disputes, unfair and deceptive trade practices, and commercial fraud. Our lawyers have expertise in international, treaty, immigration, and jurisdictional law.
