As part of our practice we regularly become involved in all aspects of transportation litigation including Trucking, Rail and Air cargo transportation.
We handle cargo damage and loss cases on behalf of cargo insurers, cargo owners, trucking companies, freight forwarders and others involved in the transportation of goods. We often accept subrogation recovery cases from Cargo insurers and recovery agencies on a “no-cure, no-pay” basis which minimizes the risk and cost of litigation to our clients. We also defend those involved in the carriage of goods from claims arising out of cargo damage or other casualties.
In addition to disputed matters, Isaacs & Co. also assists our transportation industry clients in maintaining the success and the growth of their business. We have worked with clients to revise bills of lading, contracts of carriage and other commercial documents used in the industry. Isaacs & Co. has also advised on transactions involving the establishment of shipping companies and the acquisition or sale of assets.
Another aspect of our transportation practice includes advising on the transportation of dangerous goods. We have been involved in several cases involving hazardous material and worked with clients involved in shipping such goods to establish their emergency response plans and reporting protocols.
