Mobility

Smart-cities, sustainable mobility, MaaS and autonomous and electric shared cars. We understand what moves you. Our team understands the ambitions and innovations in the Mobility sector. Our knowledge and experience is based on the work we have done for leading parties in this sector, such as (public) transport companies, investors, recognized distributors of car brands, financial institutions, insurance companies, bicycle manufacturers, fuel suppliers, parties that focus on parking management and transport and delivery services. This makes us the ideal partner to exchange thought and advise you. We are actively involved in  finding solutions for the challenges in your sector, whether it concerns sustainability issues, financing of mobility or emerging technologies. Rather than just advising you on the legal framework, we will point you towards the possibilities.

Our Mobility team combines years of experience in the sector with up-to-date knowledge of the latest technology and a pragmatic legal approach. CMS has the largest legal mobility team in the Netherlands, consisting of experts in areas such as big data and privacy, public procurement, infrastructure, transport, real estate, finance and other relevant jurisdictions.

With our sector knowledge and creativity we take your initiative a step forward. Our mobility team is ready for you.
