Norton Rose Fulbright appoints Andrew Buisson as global head of rail

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has announced that transport infrastructure partner Andrew Buisson will lead the firm’s global rail practice.

Based in London, Buisson will work across the firm’s global offices to assist clients on the many in-country opportunities that include improvements to rail infrastructure, the digitalisation of railways and the replacement of heavy carbon emitting rolling stock.

Buisson has been with the firm since 1998. He has advised on numerous urban and regional rail projects in Canada like the Waterloo, Eglinton and Ottawa Light Railway Transit Projects as well as rail infrastructure projects in the UK, US, Europe, Africa and Central Asia, and also advises on roads, airports and ports projects across the world.

He has particular experience of advising on major transactions in the accommodation, transport and nuclear sectors, and advises a broad range of private and public sector clients.

“We are delighted to be able to draw on Andrew’s extensive experience of collaborating with our practitioners from across the Norton Rose Fulbright GLOBAL platform on major rail projects,” said Christine Ezcutari, Norton Rose Fulbright global co-head of transport.

“The outlook for rail remains positive with its greener credentials and I look forward to leading our collective effort in helping our clients make the most of the opportunities,” said Buisson.
