As we come to the end of 2010, Norton Rose Australia continues to support those in the transport sector through a period of considerable change in the region.
As state governments shift investment from the public to private sector and continue to restructure regulation in the sector, companies face an era of consolidation, increased state investment, privatisation of key services as well as intensified funds and financing activity. Norton Rose Australia is actively assisting our clients to find strategic solutions to these shifts in the business landscape.
In particular, our transport experts assist clients to benefit from connections between transport, real estate and infrastructure within a sustainable framework, closing highly technical transactions and advising on future policy requirements.
In this first edition of Transport Legal Insight, we provide you with commentary and analysis on noteworthy court decisions and recent regulatory developments for your information and insight, especially focussing on how those decisions and developments impact on the region.
