Sidley is a leading adviser to projects that are shaping the future of high-speed passenger rail transport in the United States. Our lawyers serve as counsel to the developers of several major high-speed rail projects. Working together across practice areas, we offer a “one-stop-shop” approach that combines the firm’s strengths in rail transportation, financing, and environmental law, bringing to bear our extensive understanding of, and experience with, regulatory and environmental obstacles faced by such projects, including corridor development and both public and private financing solutions. Our lawyers have supported legislative and regulatory reforms designed to promote private investment in the high-speed rail sector, including the American High-Speed Rail Act, which proposes to provide more than US$200 billion in federal support for the United States’ high-speed rail infrastructure.
