Edward Fishman, an experienced attorney who specializes in infrastructure projects, principally in the transportation and logistics sector, has joined the Infrastructure Practice Group of Nossaman LLP as a Partner.

Fishman, based in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, “provides project structuring, risk management and regulatory advice in connection with rail, highway and related intermodal projects and has worked on several innovative P3 (public-private partnership) transactions,” Nossaman said in announcing his appointment. “In addition, he has substantial experience representing multinational clients in connection with the FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act), trade sanctions and other U.S. laws that apply to business activities outside the U.S. He has conducted global internal investigations relating to potential corruption, fraud and other ethics and compliance matters for companies in various industries.”

Fishman is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia and Maryland, and holds a J.D. from George Washington University Law School, an M.A. from George Washington University Elliot School of International Affairs and a B.A., cum laude, from Duke University.

Nossaman’s Infrastructure Practice Group advises on transportation infrastructure, social infrastructure, and water and wastewater infrastructure projects. Among these projects are Maryland’s Purple Line Light Rail Project, Florida’s I-4 Ultimate, the UC Merced 2020 Campus Expansion Project and the City of Los Angeles/Los Angeles World Airports LAX Landside Access Modernization Program. In the rail sector, Nossaman advises railroads, transit agencies, state departments of transportation and shippers on highly complex, high profile railroad regulatory and transactional matters. Among the firms clients are Amtrak, the California High-Speed Rail Authority and the Metropolitan Council of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

“Ed’s deep experience in the transportation sector, and the connections he’s forged both in D.C. and nationally will greatly benefit our clients,” said Simon Santiago, Leader of East Coast Operations for Nossaman’s Infrastructure Practice Group.

“We are excited that Ed is joining us,” said Kevin Sheys, an Infrastructure Partner in the D.C. office whose practice focuses on the rail industry. “He is one of the leading practitioners in the rail field, and his presence will be a valuable asset for our clients and help us enhance our services in the area.”

“Ed’s experience with FCPA and internal investigations is an important addition for the Public Policy Group at Nossaman, and fits nicely with our plan for growth here in the Washington, D.C. office,” said Fred Dombo, Chair of Nossaman’s Public Policy Practice Group and a member of the Firm’s Executive Committee.

“This is a fantastic opportunity that allows me to better serve my existing clients by leveraging the strengths of Nossaman’s renowned Infrastructure Practice Group and other leading practices of the firm, including health care, public procurement, and litigation,” said Fishman. “It also enables me to further expand my global compliance and internal investigation practice in a collegial and supportive environment, which is a very attractive proposition.”
