The legal experts for the motor trade
Established in 2001, Lawgistics have been providing legal solutions to the automotive industry for two decades and, in that time, have become recognised as the legal experts for the motor trade.
With over 14,000 subscribers to our monthly Legal Updates, 4000 businesses accessing our Legal Helpline and over 1000 members using our Casework Service, we have an unrivalled understanding of the legal issues and challenges you may face every day.
As with a trade association, our ethos is to promote best practice and provide quality legal advice at an affordable price. We offer membership packages specifically designed to help deal with employment issues, health and safety requirements, data protection regulations, customer complaints, trade to trade problems and much more.
Whether you own or are responsible for a Franchise Dealership, Car Supermarket, Used Car Dealership, Independent Service and Repair Garage, Parts Manufacturer/Supplier, Lawgistics membership packages can help protect your business, demonstrate good practice, and cut unnecessary overheads. We have tiered membership so there’s a package that’s just right for your business.
Our silver and gold membership packages include our award-winning HR Manager software.
Using HR Manager you can take control of employee records, absences, latenesses and holidays. Employee contracts can be created in minutes and will always comply with the latest regulations.
Dealing with time-consuming processes, such as grievances, disciplinary matters and appraisals becomes simplified via an easy to use process.
Our bespoke Snapshot system allows you to see who’s on holiday, late or absent across the whole of your company or on a location or departmental basis instantly – allowing you to respond faster and more effectively – taking up less of your valuable time.
The software enables compliance with Health & Safety requirements as well as GDPR issues.
Through use of the role system, you can easily delegate tasks in all these areas, providing users with up to date templates to meet legal obligations and responsibilities.
Best of all, the system automatically deals with filing all of your records and generating reports on the status of your company.
The unique Archive section provides visibility and insight across multiple locations, departments and individuals – highlighting trends and keeping you on top of issues before they become problems.
Online Stationery Forms
Our silver and gold membership packages now include our Driver Options warranty management system and unlimited standard forms.
Powered by the same software as HR Manager, your online account allows you to use and manage our motor trade stationery forms. You won’t have to worry about updating the forms as they will always be our latest version and can be quickly filled in, emailed or printed out, and filed securely online.
You also have the option to upgrade to our premium forms which have additional benefits including image and video upload, vehicle and address look up and the ability to customise the forms to tailor them to your own business needs.

"Excellent Overall Experience – Lawgistsics have been a pleasure to deal with and extremely supportive, they seem to operate with traditional values of fairness and openness and nothing seems too much trouble. In our experience they offered high quality specific advice and we felt reassured that they knew their subject. It is very refreshing speaking with people who clearly know what they are talking about, a tell-tale sign of which is their ability to provide clear and concise explanations and fully answer questions. Their advice has been invaluable to help stay on the right path and as per the other reviews the quality of their stationary and start up packs in our experience also is second to none.
The guidance we sought was wide ranging from terminology when taking 'deposit' payments by telephone through to obligations and legal positions of all parties for sales involving finance or credit cards, an absolute minefield littered with detail for which Lawgistics made our learning process enjoyable, simple and effective. Thank you."
Robert Rugen, DirectorBesuto Qualitat Automotive Limited
