The transporting of goods may lead to unexpected problems for both the customer and professional forwarding agents and carriers. The legal relations between the parties are governed by the law of obligations, but you may also need to refer to the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (CMR Convention).
To understand a dispute, you need to be familiar, for example, with the delivery terms of Incoterms, and know how things really work. We have a number of long-standing clients in the road transport sector – we have gained a considerable amount of experience and knowledge regarding the way things should be and the situations life throws at us. Our lawyers are experienced in representing contracting entities, carriers and freight forwarders in transport disputes, and we also provide ongoing advice to professionals in the field. This allows us to mention transport law as one of our key areas of activity.
