Mobility, Transport & Safety

Chaired by Tim Goodman, a former National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Assistant Chief Counsel and Federal Senior Executive (key positions just below top presidential appointees), our Mobility, Transport and Safety practice provides strategic leadership and insights to manufacturers, suppliers, start-ups, and technology companies in mobility, transport and safety matters of national significance, including those related to automated/autonomous driving systems, while promoting innovation, efficiencies, and cost-savings.

We help clients achieve their goals and expand business and policy opportunities by applying a current and detailed understanding of the federal government’s approach to transportation safety regulation and market priorities, including its programs and personnel.

We are practical and use a common sense approach.

We bring creativity to solving our clients’ problems, with healthy doses of optimism, fortitude and the willingness to work hard.

We partner with our clients to address not just the legal aspects of client problem-solving, but also the engineering/technical aspects and the communications aspects (internal and public) as well.

Representative matters and experience include:

•       Self-certification of standards (both legal and technical/engineering considerations)

•       Homologation

•       Regulatory compliance

•       Automated/autonomous driving systems

•       Innovative mobility and safety approaches

•       Best practices and emerging trends

•       Other day-to-day counseling

•       Risk management programs, reviews and internal audits

•       Assisting in legislative and rulemaking matters

•       In-house legal and business-oriented training and ongoing support

We assist manufacturers, suppliers, start-ups, and technology companies in promoting safety, innovation, better oversight, efficiencies, and cost-savings. We are practical and use a common sense approach. We partner with our clients to address not just the legal aspects of client problem-solving, but also the engineering/technical aspects and the communications aspects (internal and public) as well.”
