F&S Partners


Our Firm

Our History

Fletcher & Sippel began in 2000 with four attorneys who focused on regulatory and litigation matters. We have grown significantly since then, not only by adding several attorneys, but also by diversifying our client base and the areas of practice. By steady growth and key acquisitions of experienced counsel, we are able to offer a broad range of services for our clients. We have attorneys licensed in several states, and our client base is not only nationwide, but also international.

Fletcher & Sippel LLC is unique as a law firm that caters specifically to clients involved in the rail industry and that can address nearly every legal problem a rail client is likely to face. We have experienced business counselors, trial attorneys, regulatory counsel and labor negotiators. Other law firms may have a group of attorneys who handle rail matters, but invariably they focus on one or two aspects of railroad legal affairs and do not deal comprehensively with the business of railroading, whether it be structuring acquisitions, counseling operating and marketing officers or litigating injury and commercial claims. Several of our partners have substantial in-house railroad experience which gives them special insight into the day-to-day business and legal issues of our clients. All of our attorneys maintain a network of contacts at railroads, shippers, suppliers, labor unions and governmental agencies which is unparalleled.
