Essex based, Novadata Transport Training, in collaboration with Pellys Transport & Regulatory Law, is now offering a legal compliance service for its clients. Pellys Transport & Regulatory Law is one of the leading transport law firms in the UK with over 25 years experience in advising operators. Novadata has been providing transport training and support services for over 20 years.
The new service – based on a fixed yearly fee – will provide operators with all necessary routine legal services and advice relating to any aspect of their operation, including all employment issues. It will incorporate advice on any correspondence received from the licensing authority and the appropriate response to it. In addition, it will embrace all necessary advice and representation of the operator and its employees in connection with investigations by the police or VOSA.
Novadata’s Managing Director, Derek Broomfield said: "This represents a very cost effective package. For example, the fee will be less than £500.00 for a six vehicle fleet. This is easily justifiable when compared to the number of hours required at usual solicitors’ rates for critical tasks such as representing operators at VOSA interviews under caution, defending them when they are prosecuted or called to Public Inquiry which can easily run into many thousands of pounds."
