Welcome to Motor Industry Legal Services

Established in 1992, Motor Industry Legal Services (MILS) provides fully comprehensive legal advice and representation to UK motor retailers for one annual fee.  It is the only regulated law firm in the UK specialising in motor trade law and works exclusively with the retail motor industry.

MILS acts for over 1,000 franchised and independent businesses within the sector, including the Mercedes Benz Dealers Association.

It is the lead conciliator and arbitrator for the National Conciliation Service (NCS) and since 2007 has acted as standing Counsel for the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF), through which it also advises its members and associations; the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), Independent Garage Association (IGA), Petrol Retailers Association (PRA), National Body Repair Association (NBRA), National Motorcycle Dealers Association (NMDA), National Association of Motor Auctions (NAMA), Cherished Numbers Dealers Association (CNDA) and Vehicle Builders and Repairers Association (VBRA).

Upon payment of one annual retainer fee, a MILS client is appointed a team of barristers and solicitors which effectively acts as an in house legal department, with unlimited support on all day to day requirements and no legal costs should cases go to trial.

MILS is retained by over 1,000 motor retailers across the UK.

“MILS leaves you feeling confident that you could not have achieved a better result by using anyone else.”
