As any HGV or PCV operator knows (and as many know to their cost!) the transport industry is very heavily regulated, and whether the business runs 1 vehicle or 50 or 500, it is essential to have a good working knowledge of Road Traffic and Transport Law. However, even the most careful and conscientious operator can make a mistake, which may result in an unwelcome prosecution and the need for an appearance in Court.
No matter how great or small the problem may seem to be, we offer a comprehensive commercial transports solicitor service to meet all the requirements of your business whether you operate passenger vehicles, goods vehicles, a fleet of vans, or taxi or limousine services. We will always be pleased to advise you on:
With close links with the Road Transport industry for well over half a century, we have a clear understanding of the day-to-day problems affecting goods and passenger transport operators. This makes us better placed to offer competent and accurate advice on issues such as obtaining and preserving an Operator's Licence, the defence of prosecutions, representation at Public Inquiry, conditions of carriage and contractual disputes etc.
In addition, we also provide legal advice to those operating vehicles within specialised sections of the transport industry, such as abnormal loads, international traffic, livestock haulage and waste transport.
Transport law is wide ranging, complex and often confusing, but with our contacts in the industry, our links with the major trade associations, and our heritage, we are well placed to advise on almost any problem likely to be encountered by vehicle operators and drivers.
