BACKup is the future for legal advice. Do you charge by the hour? We don’t.
Our BACKup service has been devised to cover the pinch points of businesses in the coach sector, namely the management and safekeeping of the Operator’s Licence together with the management of people, all for an affordable fixed monthly fee based on an operator’s authorised fleet. The scheme provides 24/7 immediate access to expert transport lawyers regarding wide ranging regulatory and HR matters together with representation at Public Inquiry or Employment Tribunal.
Our service minimises the calamities and costs that can be caused by disputes and litigation because, let’s be frank, if a crisis happens, the time for preparation has passed. Our lawyers take the reins, enabling operators to concentrate on the core business of running a transport business.
At Backhouse Jones we understand the demands of running a business and the difficulty in allocating sufficient time for training. But can you afford to be without it and why take the risk?
To simplify matters we have compiled a portfolio of key training programmes which can be tailor-made to suit your operational requirements. Training is available in either manageable bite sized chunks or intensive full day brainstorming sessions.
Our O-Licence compliance reviews provide a bespoke, independent snap-shot identifying the level of compliance being achieved by the teams in your business.
