Logistics law, delivered.

Our practical legal advice helps keep the wheels of our clients’ businesses moving.

One team for logistics law

The logistics sector is facing diverse challenges and changes.  New technology, new entrants, new customer expectations, and new business models are all adding to the day-to-day legal load of leases, litigation, red tape, tenders, transactions, and tribunals.  This means you need a law firm that is smarter, faster, better.

Shoosmiths has created an innovative way of working that resonates with our logistics clients.  We offer a “one team” approach.  Whatever your logistics issue or legal objective, you’ll deal with your “go-to” expert who is familiar with the pressures you face and your business’ requirements.  To drive our client experience that extra mile, we also use technology to allow you to see the latest status of instructions, documents, reports and correspondence.

That’s how we deliver superior client fulfilment.
