Automotive & mobility

Connectivity and Autonomous Driving. Sharing Economy and Mobility Services. Electric Vehicles and New Drive Technologies. Vehicles as browsers for infotainment services and virtual personal assistants for day-to-day tasks.

Unprecedented opportunities and challenges are driving change within the automotive & mobility industry. The staggering transformation the sector is undergoing is dominated by digitisation which now permeates all areas of businesses and society combined with the need for efficient, clean and environmentally sustainable mobility solutions and transport systems at a time of rapid urbanization and high population growth.

We work with many of the leading automotive & mobility businesses to embrace the opportunities this transformation offers and to help them minimize the associated risks. We closely monitor the complex regulatory environment and legislation regime developing around autonomous & connected vehicles and mobility services, including safety, liability and insurance issues. We advise on all aspects of product law and product liability including product safety, homologation and environmental law as well as warranty issues, recalls and litigation. Our expert team comprises highly experienced class action litigators. We are well known as heavy hitters in intellectual property and patent disputes and for drafting state-of-the art licensing agreements. We ensure your business operations and systems comply with competition laws and data protection regulations and we provide comprehensive advice on data governance and ownership, IT safety and protection, cybersecurity, data access and standardisation. We draft commercial agreements and work with you to successfully optimize your business through establishment of new or optimization of existing sales and distribution networks and channels, including e-commerce.

Our clients include all players in the marketplace and throughout the supply chain - OEMs, suppliers, technology companies, distributors, dealers, service partners, rental and mobility providers. 

Because our teams in the UK, Europe and Asia are sector experts, our advice is always in line with cutting-edge developments in the industry.

We're immersed in the sector, we cooperate with established businesses and start-ups and are constantly exposed to emerging technologies and innovative working practices – many of which are pioneered by our clients. We know what’s coming in the future, and will share our knowledge and experience to benefit your business.
