Addressing Maritime and Business Law Issues Since 1989

Steady Experience In The Ever-Changing Transportation Field

Businesses within the transportation industry are constantly needing to react to shifting laws. Third-party logistics companies (3PLs), freight forwarders and transportation brokers can relieve their clients of some of their daily burdens but must face additional concerns within a complex field.

At Russell Mirkovich & Morrow, our attorneys have unique knowledge of the services and business needs of 3PLs, freight forwarders and transportation brokers. Working with the transportation and maritime industries since 1989, we provide an informed and strategic perspective to the legal challenges and opportunities of such entities.

The Benefits Of Utilizing Third-Party Transportation Companies

If your business regularly ships and stores products across state lines or international borders, you may be overwhelmed with the time-consuming logistics and regulations involved. Freight forwarders and 3PLs offer cost-effective services that can manage this part of your business so you can spend time on other issues.

Different aspects of your supply chain can be managed by 3PLs, including your warehouse storage, the coordination of the transport of goods and more. Freight forwarders offer similar services, working with carriers to book space, negotiate costs, prepare key documents and more.

Representing Third-Party Transportation Companies

Contracts between businesses and third-party transportation companies are critical to the terms of the partnership. Only few attorneys have experience in drafting such contracts. With over 30 years of experience in transportation law, our lawyers can provide strategic assistance to an array of needs, including:

  • Drafting and negotiating contracts on behalf of 3PLs, freight forwarders and transportation brokers
  • Ensuring compliance with state and federal laws
  • Representing third-party transportation companies in cases of lost, damaged or late cargo
  • Representing third-party transportation companies in other business disputes requiring litigation, arbitration or more
  • Advising on other business legal needs, including commercial leases, purchase agreements, mergers and more

We value long-term client relationships. Within the transportation industry, the need for an attorney can arise suddenly. When this happens, you need swift and strategic action. We can get to know you and your business. Whether you need representation in court or a knowledgeable review of a contract, we will be ready to assist.
