Standard Terms and Conditions

Written T&Cs clearly define the agreement between your business and your customers/clients, so everyone knows where they stand right from the start


Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)

A Non-Disclosure Agreement, also known as a Confidentiality Agreement, protects the business information you share with third parties and makes sure your business remains yours.

Assumptions this service is based on

  • That your services are correctly described by you and all information provided by you are correct;
  • That you understand that this is not a regulated law firm, but a Legal Services Provider, providing only services that are not regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority;



Debtors’ Late Payment Service

Having to chase payments? Don’t let a debtor take time away from your business. Hire a legal advisor who can assist you in this process all on a fixed-fee basis.


Contract/Agreement Review

For a one-time fixed fee (no hidden costs!), an experienced paralegal working under the auspices of our £1m PI insurance, will revert with a fully annotated review of your document/Agreement/Contract/Terms and Conditions.

Our standard turnaround time is 24 hours for 90% of the legal documents we receive.

Our fee is based on the assumptions that:

  1. You understand that the service price refers to a document review, not drafting nor rewriting;
  2. Your requirement to provide the document (this is not a drafting service) however any drafting can be completed at an additional cost;
  3. You understand that we operate as a Legal Services Provider under the provisions of the Legal Services Act 2007 providing fully insured legal services.

CW negotiated the deal that got our raw material into the world’s best salami producer – Pick, Szeged, We had been trying for years to get in the door, but CW went in and understood the technical requirements of the process of supply and made it all happen. Brilliant.

After being messed about by another individual CW managed to put things right and got my contract just as I wanted. The contract is clear, concise, contains everything I need and things I hadn’t thought of, which CW helpfully pointed out. And lastly but probably most importantly – the contract is now also legal and would hold up in court (which the old one wouldn’t). Thank you CW for great work and we’ll be back for more soon.

Smart, friendly and approachable

I received invaluable debt advice and CW drafted a letter which enabled the recovery of all outstanding monies in full. I hope to work with CW again.

Colin gave us good advice in relation to a contractual matter, where we could not afford to get involved in an expensive protracted legal fight, and this enabled us to solve the problem. CW’s advice is always clear and concise and enables us to act without worry regarding legal and contractual matters.

I can't recommend him highly enough

Colin helped review our existing contracts and provided a new one in 2014 and we found him very knowledgeable and affordable. He also helped me out (understatement) after I had dug myself into a big hole, whilst he was on holiday at the other side of the world so I can’t recommend him highly enough.
