Hello and welcome to 

EWIF South-West & Wales.

I’m Stephen Thompson, the EWIF South West and Wales Regional Chair. I am head of the corporate/commercial department at Darwin Gray Solicitors, which includes our franchising team. We are a commercial law firm based in Cardiff.

Our specialist franchising team provides expert advice in all areas of franchise law and practice. When necessary we work alongside other departments in the firm including commercial property, employment/HR and also commercial dispute resolution.

As an affiliate member of the British Franchise Association, I have been advising businesses in the franchising sector for approximately 20 years. In addition to advising on the legal aspects of franchising, my colleagues and I regularly speak at franchising events. 

 I am pleased to be chairing the newly consolidated EWIF South West and Wales Region, to help grow the presence of EWIF in Wales and build on the excellent work that is being done for franchisors and franchisees across the region.
