Linklaters has announced the launch of its global Mobility sector in a reposition of its approach to the auto and transportation markets in the context of climate change, energy transition, and digitisation.
This new sector will allow the firm to support clients at the forefront of zero-carbon, cutting-edge and fast-growing industries across the entire spectrum of mobility: from electric and alternative fuelled vehicles and related infrastructure and components manufacturers, through to established global and local transit, transport and logistics players, service providers and the emerging space industry.
Linklaters’ new global Mobility group will advise clients on their strategic planning, priorities and the challenges they face around digitisation, tech disruption, climate change and energy transition. The team will also continue to advise the firm’s key automotive and transport clients in their connectivity and technology implementation efforts and in transitioning away from combustion engines towards vehicles powered by greener energy sources.
Linklaters’ existing Transport sector will also become part of Mobility to ensure an integrated approach to the global transport industry which is expected to continue embracing technology and transitioning to cleaner and greener travel through the adoption of sustainable fuel and hydrogen-fuelled assets.
The forward-looking Mobility sector will collaborate closely with other sectors and groups within the firm such as Energy, Technology, Infrastructure, Fintech and ESG.
The Mobility sector will be led by a global, cross-functional team spread across Europe, the US and Asia with expertise in corporate/M&A, finance, data, digitisation and technology implementation, energy transition, and ESG.
