More than 40 attorneys from multiple practice areas throughout 13 offices nationwide belong to the newly formed group. It brings together their experience into one collaborative practice that will focus on six main areas of law – corporate, litigation, labor and employment, environmental, intellectual property and data security. More specifically, the group will advise clients on regulatory compliance and fleet operations as well as working with public and private companies on corporate structure, finance, mergers, acquisitions and contracts; litigation; labor and employment; insurance claims and risk management; warehousing and distribution; trademarks, patents and other intellectual property; call centers and outsourcing; immigration and global mobility; and customs.
“Being already invested in the logistics and transportation industry, the formal addition of this group further reinforces our commitment to clients to help them understand the issues faced by companies in this industry,” said Abeska. “This is just one way we aim to provide greater value and efficiency to our clients and future clients in this evolving and exciting industry.”
Barnes & Thornburg attorneys, having counseled major transportation clients across the country, have worked with logistics businesses, carriers, brokers, manufacturers and shippers who manage and facilitate transportation via truck, ocean, air and rail on their legal needs. Representation includes companies at all ends of the supply chain, from large international transportation and logistics companies to small- or medium-sized suppliers.
The group will be hosting a Logistics and Transportation Legal Update Seminar on April 12 in Chicago.
With more than 600 attorneys and other legal professionals, Barnes & Thornburg is one of the largest law firms in the country. The firm serves clients worldwide from 13 offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Delaware, Indiana, Los Angeles, Michigan, Minneapolis, Ohio, and Washington, D.C.
