Our economy relies on the transportation industry to keep things moving—and the transportation industry relies on Schwabe.
Moving industry leaders forward
With experience representing Class I railroads throughout Oregon and Washington, Schwabe has a profound understanding of the legal matters that arise at the intersection of railroads, government and business. We collaborate with railroads, ports and local governments on large, mutually beneficial projects supporting the Pacific Northwest's economy. In addition, we assist railroads with environmental regulation and permitting at various rail facilities, including intermodal facilities.
Defending the railroads
We defend rail and transportation personal injury claims, including Federal Employers Liability Act, wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases. Our lawyers have the experience and capacity to advise on every aspect of a derailment, third party claim, or environmental or federal railroad regulation that impacts your business.
