Mr. Fishman has considerable experience working on infrastructure projects, principally in the transportation and logistics sector. He provides project structuring, risk management and regulatory advice in connection with rail, highway and related intermodal projects and has worked on several innovative public-private partnership (PPP) transactions.

Nossaman’s Infrastructure Practice Group advises on transportation infrastructure, social infrastructure, and water and wastewater infrastructure projects. These projects include 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 is at the forefront of advising railroads, transit agencies, state departments of transportation and shippers on highly complex, high profile railroad regulatory and transactional matters - rail clients include National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak), California High-Speed Rail Authority and the Metropolitan Council (Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN).
Mr. 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.

“We are excited that Ed is joining us. He is one of the leading practitioners in the rail field - his presence will be a valuable asset for our clients and help us enhance our services in the area.”
Mr. Fishman said:
“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. 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.”
