10 Year Anniversary of Windels Marx' Transportation Practice is Today!

Monday, April 27, 2020

A message from Matthew Daus, Partner and Chair of the Windels Marx Transportation Practice Group:

Ten years ago today I founded the Transportation Practice Group at the law firm of Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf, LLP, where I serve as Partner and Chair. It has been quite a journey, and it continues to be an absolute privilege and honor to represent mobility professionals from around the world, including private companies and government agencies. We have helped our clients navigate challenging times before, and our team will spend every waking hour and minute ensuring they remain resilient in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. History has dealt us some real setbacks before, but the transportation community has always overcome, and will once again. My career milestones have been met at every turn by such adversity, including taking over as NYC Taxi & Limousine Commissioner/Chair just a few weeks before 9/11, joining Windels Marx and building this law practice from scratch at the height of the Great Recession, and then dealing with many long years of technology disruption that upended traditional transportation business models.

We have seen the rise and fall of businesses, the creation of new policies and laws, and have continued to help our clients survive and thrive; and have done so as a law firm since the 1800s – where we remained intact through the influenza pandemic of 1918 and two World Wars. Windels Marx is a multi-faceted cost-conscious firm of hundreds of lawyers and staff, with dozens of legal professionals dedicated to helping transportation related businesses in all areas of the law. I am proud of our law firm’s new motto, “Tradition, Innovation, Distinction...” which now appears on our revamped website, as we have lived by these words for our first decade. I look forward to many decades to come of diligently representing our clients to help them succeed and prosper once again, and our team will devote every ounce of energy and fortitude to making that happen with quality services and sound counsel.
