Based in Chicago, whose two major airports, commercial shipping port, freight rail hub, and surface transportation networks make the region one of the country's major transportation centers, Stahl Cowen has long guided national, regional, and local trucking companies, logistics providers, storage facilities, rail consultants, product distributors, and other industry participants.

We assist them on successful mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, and divestitures, and advise them on employment matters, including employee classification and misclassification, hiring and firing, negotiating executive contracts, developing and implementing sound and legal policies and procedures, and more. We help them raise capital, secure short- and long-term funding, and structure and negotiate strategic alliances to extend market share and enter new geographies. And we work with them to comply with occasionally conflicting state and federal regulations, from antitrust to environmental, safety to employment, licensing to registration, and beyond.

Companies across the industry count on our market knowledge, business perspective, and practical approach to identify and pursue cost-efficient solutions to resolve a wide range of transportation-related disputes, over competition and commercial issues, cargo and freight claims, rates and regulation, accidents and injuries, and other industry matters.

Increasingly, we help prepare our transportation clients for the future, where driverless vehicles, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things will converge to offer both significant opportunities and challenges for industry participants, including in particular around the storage and protection of data.
