Road Transport Law

JMW’s commercial road transport team has extensive experience advising and representing operators of all sizes across the haulage, coach and bus sectors nationwide. Their clients range from family-owned SMEs to some of the UK’s major bus and coach companies as well as well-known ‘household name’ haulage companies across sectors including retail, parcel delivery, waste, pharmaceutical and medical, animal feed, construction, scaffolding, fuel and agriculture.

Commercial road transport is the lifeblood of the UK economy. However, the logistics and passenger transport sectors are heavily regulated to protect road safety and ensure a level playing field. Poor compliance can attract the attention of enforcement agencies, resulting in prosecutions and/or a hearing before the Traffic Commissioner with the risk of action being taken against the Operator’s Licence, the directors, the transport manager and the driver.

JMW’s experts are recognised as leading lawyers on the full spectrum of matters relating to the licensing and regulation of commercial road transport. They are intimately familiar with the rafts of legislation and guidance and draw on decades of first-hand experience to provide strategic advice that recognises the practical and operational challenges operators face - enabling operators to successfully navigate the law while allowing them to concentrate on the day-to-day task of managing their businesses. JMW’s commercial road transport team also works closely with many of the trade associations supporting the road transport sector and their members.

The team is co-headed by Laura Hadzik and Scott Bell who have over 30 years of combined experience in this niche specialism. They are both recognised as leaders in their field and have developed enviable reputations for their unrivalled expertise in this niche area and their sector-specific knowledge.
