Our attorneys assist clients to prepare and review transportation contracts, logistics agreements, equipment leases, independent contractor agreements, shipping documents, rate tariffs and carrier interchange agreements.
In a published decision, Transamerica Leasing, Inc. vs. Institute of London Underwriters, our attorneys successfully represented London underwriters through trial and appeals regarding the lack of standing as an additional assured by a container leasing company, successfully defending against a multi-million dollar claim for lost containers and recovering fees and expenses for underwriters.
