Our team at Francis Wilks & Jones specialises in a wide variety of services for SME’s, often helping them to continue their day-to-day trading safely on a secure legal basis. Let us help you today.

It is a truism of doing business that getting things right at the front end can often make a considerable difference if disputes or issues arise with customers or suppliers later on.

Our team at Francis Wilks & Jones are experts in advising SME’s on the following:

General commercial contracts

Whether you are entering into a contract with a new supplier or being asked to sign a contract yourself, it is always vital to understand the terms of that contract. Making sure you are properly protected in the event of issues later on is fundamentally important. We can help protect you.

Terms of trade

Having a well drafted set of terms and conditions for your own particular business is of vital importance when trading with other companies or businesses. They needn’t be over complicated documents – even a few key clauses can save huge amounts of time and effort in the event of a later dispute.

Alternatively, our team can help interpret the terms of another trading party – and make sure you know what you are getting in to.

Purchasing a business

If your business is growing and looking to expand, then you might be interested in purchasing another business to aid your own onward expansion. Our expert team of lawyers regularly advise business owners and directors on all aspects of purchasing new businesses.


Whatever your general business enquiries, our expert team of solicitors are here to assist. We regularly advise SME’s and other businesses on all aspects of their trading set up, general terms and conditions and any perspective or new contractual arrangements they might be looking to enter into. Call our team of experts today and we can help.
