Wilson Elser has represented national, regional and short-line railroads; rail car suppliers; and related entities for many years. Our lawyers, who routinely attend and present at meetings of industry organizations, have extensive experience in handling railroad law and litigation matters as well as Federal Railroad Safety Act federal preemption strategies and motion work. The highly experienced trial attorneys in our Railroad service don hard hats and safety vests as members of our 24/7 railroad go-teams, ensuring that potentially exculpatory on-scene evidence is preserved and that maintenance and other records are promptly sequestered, inventoried, copied and shared with investigating authorities and agencies.

All legal service areas within Wilson Elser are available to each of our railroad clients through one point of contact. Because we know your business, we remain alert to your needs and aware of your objectives.
