Consumer Rights Disputes
Consumer Rights Solicitors
Businesses and service providers have a duty to ensure that the products or services they are selling comply with the expected standard. If a business fails in this regard and refuses to rectify the issue then you could find yourself in dispute with them and may even find yourself in need of legal representation.
In some cases a business will try to resolve the issue by offering to fix or replace a product that is faulty, improve a bad service or provide you with a refund; however if these options have not been offered to you and the business refuses to acknowledge a problem with its product or service then seeking legal advice can help you to resolve the matter quickly.
Consumer rights law can be confusing; as a result many people are unsure how to resolve the issue and decide not to exercise their legal rights. At Rotheras our Dispute Resolution team are well-versed in advising and representing clients in relation to consumer rights disputes.

Chris Powell at Rotheras was recommended to us by a trusted associate within the Transport Industry; without doubt we wouldn’t have had the excellent outcome we did without his and his team’s involvement. The level of professionalism, expert advice and assistance was faultless; we felt reassured and well informed throughout the whole process. It was a pleasure to do business with him and would highly recommend his services!

I would highly recommend James Briggs, solicitor at Rotheras. He has been extremely helpful, patient and thorough whilst helping me with affairs following the death of my husband. Even during lockdown (covid) he maintained communication and kept me informed of what was happening. He successfully achieved the outcome I needed and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
We are in the middle of launching our own packaging agency and contacted Rotheras for some professional legal advice with regards to contracts. After an initial call with Billy, he made it clear what we needed and asked plenty of questions to understand what it was we needed. He was very responsive to our questions, whether it be over the phone or via emails and made the process really simple. We had little experience in this area so it was fantastic to work with Billy, who explained everything concisely. We were also really pleased with the quick turnaround and great value offered. Would thoroughly recommend working with Rotheras.
Tom Burden, Director of Rightbox Ltd
Billy understood our requirement from the get go and really nailed down on what we needed in our commercial agency agreement. Billy kept us informed every step of the way and showed great professionalism. We would recommend his services to any start-up business who is in need of legal advice and guidance with commercial contracts.

A Short Guide to Meeting Your Responsibilities as an External Transport Manager
It is not easy being an External Transport Manager. You have the same responsibilities as a full-time in-house Transport Manager however you might only be contracted for a handful of hours a week in the case of a single vehicle operator. Even for a diligent External Transport Manager it can be difficult to exercise continuous and effective control when you may only see the vehicles you are responsible for a few hours a week.
This guide is intended to be a short, no-nonsense crib sheet for External Transport Managers. It is by no means comprehensive, but it does flag up some of the more common issues that can ultimately lead to problems with the Traffic Commissioner.
