Your partner in a changing legal landscape
Today’s mobility industry offers fresh challenges to traditional automotive manufacturers, while at the same time opening vast new markets which can deliver decades of sustainable global growth. The accumulated know-how of our automotive lawyers helps our clients plan for a future which offers big rewards to those businesses that can think boldly.
From the use of bio fuels to electric-powered vehicles, environmental considerations are driving new means of fuel and power. Shared ownership and subscription-based models offer challenges to the dominance of traditional dealerships and pose a variety of new legal questions.
Advances in digital technology and automated intelligence meanwhile are opening up the possibilities of autonomous driving and networked cars - both promising much but carrying their own risks around security and safety.
All of these challenges fall against a backdrop where regulatory compliance, data issues and consumer-driven litigation are under increasing scrutiny. For all that and more, you need a law firm that can help you make the most of new opportunities while identifying and minimising risks.
Shoosmiths’ automotive lawyers are in position to help you read the road ahead. Contact our team today to learn more about our legal services in the mobility sector.
