The rail industry is prepared to make sizeable investments in the coming years to meet the needs of the 21st century.
The global rail industry has not been immune to recent challenges, such as the crisis in the financial markets, the slowdown in the manufacturing sector across many industries, and shifts in global trade. In this environment, meeting increasing demand for freight and passenger transportation poses a series of challenges.
With an anticipated US$300 billion being invested globally to upgrade, expand and initiate railway networks, the rail industry needs to solve substantial business issues, such as capacity and congestion, operational efficiency and reliability, structural and competition issues, and safety and security.
Clifford Chance's Rail Industry Group works with its clients locally and internationally to help them address these issues, drawing on industry knowledge gained from our regular involvement in some of the most important, innovative and complex projects in this sector.
