Society of Operations Engineers adds Backhouse’s Ian Jones to its governing body

Ian Jones, Director of leading transport solicitors Backhouse Jones, has been appointed to the Society of Operations Engineers’ (SOE) governing body. .

Specialising in representing PCV and HGV operators, Ian co-founded Backhouse Jones in 2000. The firm has since grown to become the largest specialist transport law firm in the country, with the biggest market share of any in its field.

He says: “I feel I’ll be able to bring a fresh perspective and add a legalistic viewpoint to the Society’s activities. The bar of legal compliance is being increasingly raised by the Traffic Commissioners. I firmly believe that prevention is better than cure, and want to assist SOE in educating the industry.”
