The commercial trucking industry operates as a backbone of the American economy, with revenues expected to top $1.5 trillion by 2026.  Companies operating in this space require forward-thinking legal counsel infused with a technical understanding of the logistics that factor prominently in the industry. 

Commercial trucking is a highly specialized enterprise.  Our attorneys collectively have decades of experience in the industry that includes working in our clients’ physical headquarters, and speaking with both upper management as well as the employees responsible for day-to-day operations.  We go directly into the trucks, and have an understanding of the critical communications and tracking systems used by their drivers on a daily basis.

Polsinelli’s attorneys counsel some of the country’s largest commercial trucking organizations in a diversity of legal areas, including:
  • Class actions involving driver compensation
  • Employment claims, including defense of harassment, discrimination and retaliation claims
  • Breach of contract issues
  • Fraud claims
  • Breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing claims
  • Corporate and transactional matters, including commercial contracts and transactions, mergers and acquisitions
In addition, we work with a variety of transportation logistics companies on other types of general commercial litigation matters, including fraud and breach of contract claims.
