My Company Information

The deal is almost done. The future looks bright. You just need an expert to draft an agreement that will make sure your future working relationship will be profitable for all. I’ll draft your agreement so that you know where you’re going, the terms are clear and you stay in control.

Allow me to work with you and you’ll get:

1.    20 years’ experience as a commercial solicitor in a City law firm, local and national government and higher education. I draft, negotiate and advise on all types of commercial contract.

2.    No staff and nothing is subcontracted. You’ll work with me from beginning to end.  I won't hide behind emails and I will return your calls.

3.    No templates. Contracts are written from scratch every time so they’re personal to you.

4.    Fixed and transparent pricing. The meter isn’t running.

5.    Specialist knowledge. I work exclusively for business clients.

The success of your business depends on maintaining  good relationships with your customers and suppliers. Getting the terms of those relationships clear from the outset could save you a lot of trouble and heartache later on. 

Call me on 01904 899794 and we'll agree an action plan.

I'm Simon Ward, Director of TECHNICAL TERMS. | Small print. Big experience.

About Simon Ward

I have 20 years experience as a commercial solicitor and possess a track record of achieving favourable outcomes that represent a strong return on investment to private and public sector organisations.

I draft, negotiate and advise on all types of commercial contract including: agreements for the supply of goods and services; agency, distribution and franchising agreements; confidentiality agreements; data sharing agreements; intellectual property licensing agreements; and outsourcing agreements.  I also advise on the application of procurement law. My clients include four universities in Yorkshire and the North East as well as local authorities and NHS bodies throughout the country.

Based in York, I accept instructions from organisations and individuals in all areas of the country and will be pleased to meet with you at your premises or at another location convenient to you.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children as well as running any distances from parkrun to ultramarathon!


“I asked Simon to review contracts for me, and the work done was highly professional, prompt, with great accuracy and attention to detail. He also took ownership of some of the issues that arose from the review, and negotiated over aspects of the contracts with the external suppliers to positive effect. I was very impressed by his professional approach, and have no hesitation in recommending him.” Deputy Academic Registrar – University of Sunderland

“Simon was approachable and a great support. His contribution was invaluable. He made the complicated process of the legal system seem easy for the layman and had a positive and supportive approach throughout.” Studio Manager – HEART EM

“Simon undertook some legal work for a new supplier we were entering into contract with. I found Simon to be prompt, efficient and highly professional. I also found him to have a customer focus and was genuinely interested in what the contract entailed, which was very refreshing.” Health, Safety and Environmental Practitioner – County Durham Housing Group

“I enjoyed Simon's relational approach to his service provision of legal advice.” Associate Professor – Northumbria University
