Jencks Law, P.C. provides representation to federally licensed brokers, freight forwarders and third party logistics providers in all aspects of transportation. We are an industry leader in the preparation of intermediary contracts for brokers and freight forwarders. We also lead or co-chair litigation nationwide with regard to transportation issues such as contract litigation, contract drafting and negotiation, liability for freight destroyed or damaged in transit, recovery of freight and tariff charges, transportation related fraud, bankruptcy, carrier-vendor contract dispute, demurrage and detention recovery and motor carrier agency litigation.
The firm has developed extensive experience litigating cargo liability claims on both sides of the Motor Carrier/Broker/Shipper continuum. We have successfully resolved freight disputes involving damaged or delayed cargo, as well as the collection of overdue freight charges. When a cargo claim occurs, it is critical to consult attorneys who understand the multitude of potential insurance issues, litigation defense strategies, case law and legislation such as the Carmack Amendment to the Interstate Commerce Clause and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. We represent two insurers in providing cargo claim defense. We remain active members in the Transportation Lawyers’ Association and are called upon by various transportation organizations to speak on issues of cargo claims from various perspectives.
