Hello and welcome to

EWIF Midlands.


I’m Fiona Boswell, the EWIF Midlands Regional Chair. I’m the Head of Franchising at Fraser Brown Solicitors, the largest independent firm in Nottingham with a dedicated multidisciplinary franchise team.  I have been advising businesses in the franchising sector for over 10 years both in private practice and in businesses that franchise on all aspects of owning, running, growing and exiting franchises.  I am an affiliate member of the Bfa and a member of the Association of Franchise Attorneys and enjoy sharing my knowledge as a speaker at franchise events; and in articles in franchise media.

I decided to start the Midlands EWIF region to help business in the region have a local forum to discuss all things franchising.  As a women in franchising with female clients and clients with franchises that encourage female franchisees it is great to be part of an organisation that can support and help their businesses grow.

The Midlands meetings are held at our Nottingham office 84 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6ED.
