Rail and transport

Rail and transport projects constitute typical (often longer-term) public-sector infrastructural projects. The complex legal requirements and high public visibility of these projects (on which the public frequently demands a voice) mean that transport projects consume substantial staff and financial resources of those responsible for them. BMT has many years of experience in preparing, structuring and carrying out infrastructural projects, as well as in representing the interests of parties in judicial disputes on finalised projects. Our team of experts has specialist knowledge in the field of public law and thus can assist in land use planning and permitting proceedings for infrastructural projects from the road, rail and seaport transport sectors.

BMT has expertise in respect of proceedings under highways law, and, inter alia, with regard to the law governing the German federal motorways, the law governing railways and carriage by rail (including the points of intersection with the public roadways), as well as passenger transport law. Our aim is to help clients by removing many of the obstacles which crop up along the way in European competitive tendering procedures. You might be a principal with a need for legal safeguards in the wide-ranging procedural stages of an infrastructural project, or you might be a bidder with a need for competent legal support. Our clients include companies from the rail industry and passenger rail, rail logistics and infrastructure sectors.

The spectrum of BMT’s advisory and consulting services also includes support on accompanying infrastructural projects such as property developments in the vicinity of ports and motorways, as well as logistics zones, commercial and industrial zones. Our clients benefit from our first-rate sector knowledge and comprehensive experience from a host of property development projects. Our specialists are skilled in dealing with complex technological subject-matter. BMT will put you on the right track.
