What our clients say:

I was very impressed with the work undertaken by the team at FWJ. Their commercial approach combined with specialist knowledge and tactical expertise was pivotal in the claim being dropped and costs recovered in full.


I was greatly impressed with the commercial, tactical and technical ability of the team at FWJ. They quickly got to grips with a complex set of facts involving my directorship of a group of nine companies, each one named in the director disqualification proceedings against me. Through their hard work they had the proceedings against me dropped and a significant proportion of my legal fees repaid. They also helped me defend and defeat other claims by the liquidator arising from the liquidation of the group of companies. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.


I was delighted by the work done by the team at FWJ. Not only did they help me secure the time I needed to make my new business a success, they then obtained permission from the court for me to remain a director of my new business moving forward. Without that permission, my new company would have been in grave danger. As it is, I can continue to grow it free from the worry of my original disqualification. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Their legal and tactical knowledge was spot on”


We instructed FWJ when faced with a Disqualification Claim proposed to be brought by the Secretary of State, for our disqualification. This would have had an incredible effect and in any event appeared to have been brought on a basis of a misunderstanding as to how our business worked. FWJ were very hands on, getting involved from an early stage in seeking to avert an expensive set of litigation proceedings. Later, we also faced a claim proposed to be brought by the Liquidator for recovery of sums which had not been improperly drawn. FWJ also assisted with this and was successful in dissuading the Liquidator from issuing proceedings.

The Disqualification Claim continued for about two years through to Trial and FWJ were able to consider and take us on by means of other types of funding arrangements. The proceedings at Trial lead to a Dismissal of the Disqualification Claim as a result of the hard work of FWJ, and I am more than happy to recommend their services, particularly when it comes to considering complicated issues or complex proceedings.
