Clyde & Co is pleased to announce that Nigel Taylor has joined the firm's global transport infrastructure team.
Nigel joins the firm as a partner from Field Fisher Waterhouse. He advises listed and unlisted UK companies, overseas corporations and multinationals in primarily the transport sector, with a particular focus on rail. His experience, both in the UK and internationally, includes mergers and acquisitions, corporate structuring, joint ventures and fund raisings. To complement his corporate work, Nigel also has a great deal of experience in rail franchising, including franchise renewal bids, mobilisation and implementation.
Nigel has been involved in the rail sector since privatisation. He has acted on transactions involving participants from the Department for Transport and the Office of Rail Regulation through to domestic franchised and open access operators and multinational mobility and logistics operators. Nigel is recognised as advising on rail transport in the 2010 UK Legal 500.
Clyde & Co Head of Corporate Philip Rogers said: "Clients are looking for integrated transport solutions, backed up by genuine in-depth industry experience, and require advice in all areas of transport including road, rail, sea and air. Nigel brings additional transactional rail expertise that forms a vital part of our integrated transport group in which Clyde already has a leading reputation. Quite apart from opportunities in the UK market, our unique foot print in emerging markets, including the Middle East and India (through our association with ALMT) and Africa, enables us to leverage our industry expertise to advise on large rail projects in those markets. Nigel will play an invaluable role in helping us drive forward our practice in the UK and internationally."
Nigel Taylor said: "I was attracted to Clyde & Co by its clear commitment to transportation (and rail) as an industry sector as well as its strength internationally particularly in emerging markets where there is enormous scope for growth. Clyde & Co has an impressive global transport infrastructure team, recently increased through the merger with Shadbolts. With 24 offices around the world in key trading hubs, Clyde & Co has the reach and resource to deliver on complex, cross-border transport infrastructure transactions."
