Road Transport Law
The specialist solicitors at JMW understand the needs of hauliers and bus and coach operators, including the complexities that come with running a compliant transport operation. We can provide you with strategic solutions to any road transport law issue, specifically tailored to meet the practical and commercial needs of your business.
We cover operators of all vehicles from special types to heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), to buses, coaches and rail replacement vehicles. Where your business hinges on the use of an operator’s licence, we can advise you on how best to obtain and keep that licence. Liaising with the Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency (DVSA) and the Office of the Traffic Commissioner can be daunting, but JMW is here to help.
If you are a transport firm and have any legal issues, our road transport solicitors can help. Call us on 0345 872 6666, or complete our online enquiry form and we will give you a call back at a convenient time.

Why Choose JMW?
The road transport solicitors at JMW have niche experience in advising businesses, individuals, and even trade associations on legal matters relating to the transport industry. We provide a high quality of service and offer pragmatic legal advice and solutions to the problems faced by operators, transport managers, professionals, and other industry players.
Poor compliance with regard to transport can not only attract the attention of the Traffic Commissioners, but also lead to potential criminal prosecutions brought by the police and/or DVSA.
Our solicitors are familiar with both the regulatory areas as well as the criminal procedures. Often when one set of criminal proceedings end, the regulatory process starts. It is the wide nature of our expertise that allows us to offer a full service to those in the transport sector and devise commercially sensible and industry-specific solutions when a problem arises.
