We provide expertise in helping businesses which require or hold an operator’s licence to run heavy goods vehicles, buses or coaches (including minibuses and stretched limousines) to negotiate the specialist regulations which apply to such operations. Our services include the provision of advice to the transport industries 24/7 and assistance to operators and their employees. We are an experienced team with a track record of success in this field, we offer representation at public inquiries before traffic commissioners (and in appeals) including applications for new licences where there are objections on environmental or road safety grounds, in regulatory proceedings where operators face disciplinary action which could put them out of business, or in the case of bus operators, where they are alleged to have failed to keep to their timetables. In addition, we act on behalf of professional drivers who face a driver conduct hearing.
We also offer advice and representation during interviews and in court proceedings in respect of those who face prosecution arising out of alleged offences which might put the future of an operator’s licence at risk.
When it comes to road transport law, few have as much experience as AMD Solicitors’ Philip Brown. A former specialist regulator for the goods and bus & coach industries, Philip was also Senior Traffic Commissioner for Great Britain from 2003-2011.
What our Clients say
From IP and T&Cs to commercial property issues, Grant McCall and his commercial team have provided invaluable support and advice for our businesses. We also instructed Grant when we sold part of our business back in 2013. The multinational buyer meant this was a real David and Goliath situation for us and, with Grant on our side, we achieved a significantly higher payment than what we were seeking before his instruction. I have no hesitation in recommending AMD’s commercial team and we continue to use them to protect, plan and grow our businesses.15/01/2019
A massive thanks to you and Ana for drawing up Zanshin Film’s Terms and Conditions. You both listened carefully to, and completely understood a few very industry specific requirements that I had, and these have been integrated into the legal-speak !
I feel very confident going into new jobs now, knowing that I have a watertight, and if needed, enforceable set of Terms and Conditions.

I previously used AMD on a commercial basis, and needed some matters trust-related to be dealt with. I was put through to Andrew Jack, and the services he has provided, have been excellent. At times, he has brought in Florence, and our Family have always felt at ease with AMD’s Client Care. Strenuously recommended.15/03/2019
