Hubs for innovation, technology and global trade

Ports

Ports in the UK represent a dynamic industry of fast paced innovation and trade, whether sea ports, freeports or port suppliers.

This presents huge but often complex opportunities to those in the sector. Supporting our clients to capitalise on those opportunities is where the team at Foot Anstey specialises, striving to replicate the dynamism that characterises Ports.

Our specialist team of lawyers work closely with clients – including operators of ports as well as suppliers and customers of ports – advise on a broad range of infrastructure and real estate development projects, commercial contracts and regulatory work.
