Francis Wilks & Jones was founded in 2002. We firmly believe that strong personal working relationships make for the best legal advice - and the fact that we still enjoy working with clients who joined us from the beginning today is testament to that.

Tim and Andy – and the super team at FWJ

The firm’s two founding partners, Andy Wilks and Tim Francis, both still work in the practice. Tim leads our insolvency team, Andy is our managing partner.

We have grown to employ a highly capable team of like-minded solicitors and support staff, all of whom are accessible to our clients.  This ensures that our clients receive prompt and effective response times, coupled with cost effective solutions, something often unattainable for our larger competitors.

What we do for our clients

Over the years we have extended our areas of specialism and now provide legal services to a number of business sectors together with more bespoke advice to individuals. Alongside our many banking and finance clients – including members of the asset based lending industry, insolvency practitioners, recruitment companies, brokers and accountants – we now work with significant numbers of private clients and SMEs.  

FWJ is primarily a commercial practice with a strong emphasis on commercial litigation and dispute resolutiondebt recoverydirector and shareholder advice, tax disputes, commercial finance, banking and finance, and insolvency and restructuring work.

We recognised early on the impact technology could have in improving service quality and efficiency and reducing cost for our clients and we have always invested time and money to ensure our systems are built to meet our clients’ specific requirements. From outstanding case management to cutting-edge debt recovery, at FWJ you’ll always receive a bespoke service and a fair price.

Throughout all the fun times and challenges that business invariably throws your way – we have learnt that it is people who are key to our success – our fantastic team, our wonderful clients and all the other great people we have worked with over the last 20 years. It is down to you that we are the success we are today – and we thank you for all your support.

And for all those who knew us from the early days – a rare photo for you to enjoy. We were young once!
