Overview

Over half of all consumer goods shipped to the United States enter the country through its west coast ports. The shipping industry accounts for countless cargo, transportation, trucking, and rail services moving billions of dollars’ worth of consumer goods from the coast to and through the rest of the nation. In addition to playing a pivotal role in both California and the nation’s economies, the logistics and distribution sector employs hundreds of thousands of workers all across the nation. In other words, corporations in this industry have a lot on the line, and in order to keep things moving as smoothly as they need to be, cutting-edge legal representation is key. That’s where we come in.

Having worked with international shipping lines, marine container terminals, port authorities, rail transport, trucking, warehousing, and third party logistics companies, AALRR has handled some of the most significant shipping matters, and has long been recognized as the go-to labor and employment law firm in the industry. Our attorneys have managed countless cases in this critical sector—and have achieved numerous wins, whether litigating in state and federal court, handling negotiations, arguing a case before the NLRB, and anything in between. Our extensive experience in the industry provides our attorneys with a multi-layered understanding of our client’s transportation-related business operations and needs. We provide guidance and counsel on diverse issues involving government regulation, e-commerce, customer and vendor relationships, independent contractor classification, intermodal operations, technology processes and implementation, labor relations, and policy development.

Companies within the logistics and distribution sector often work under timelines with little to no margin of error—and our team of legal experts pride themselves on working with clients on their timeline. That means taking calls whenever a critical need arises and moving quickly yet diligently to make sure nothing slips through the cracks. Our efficacy has been proven in cases with the highest stakes: In 2017, we were one of the only firms in the nation to successfully oppose a federal lawsuit by the NLRB seeking immediate injunctive relief.

We regularly serve port authorities, rail transport, shipping, trucking, recycling, warehousing businesses, and other related clients in a wide range of matters, including class action lawsuits, prevailing wage claims, obtaining and enforcing intellectual property rights, e-commerce, equipment and other property transactions, environmental regulations, litigation of unfair labor practice claims before the NLRB, critical work stoppage scenarios, employment law compliance, and facility development and maintenance. When you work in shipping and logistics, your work can span the globe. We’ll make sure you’re covered in all corners.
