Services to the Freight Industry

Francis Wilks & Jones has a broad range of experience acting for freight companies. Our expertise in this industry sector is also as a result of our excellent links with industry and our associate membership of the British International Freight Association.

Debt Recovery and Litigation

During the last decade we have recovered significant sums of money for our freight clients making us a strategic partner to their respective businesses. 

We understand the need for fast and effective payment of your outstanding invoices. Cash flow is vital to your business and the importance of quick debt turn in the current economic climate is something we fully understand.

Our aim is simple - To recover your money as quickly as possible and at the lowest cost to you.

We represent both Claimants and Defendants and, having advised on “both sides of the fence”, are well positioned to offer pragmatic and focussed advice to best achieve our clients’ objectives.

Conscious of the commercial realities of protracted legal proceedings, we are strong advocates of all forms of appropriate early settlement options both pre and post issue of proceedings. These range from informal settlement meetings / negotiations to more structured alternative dispute resolution  procedures.  We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach.

FWJ is proud to have two accredited commercial mediators who can assist in this respect

Commercial Advice

We regularly advise on non-contentious issues such as the enforceability of terms and conditions, the respective liabilities in a lengthy supply chain and the viability, improvements and merits of both proposed and existing business processes.
