Powerful Solutions With A Personal Touch

Legal Support For Franchisees

Franchises can be lucrative. However, the path to success for a franchise may not be as easy as it seems on the surface. Franchisees have to address the same issues that other business owners face, but also have to deal with issues unique to franchises. That is why it is critical to work with an attorney who has a proven history in the field of franchise law.

I am attorney Paul N. Ambrose Jr. My 30-plus years of practicing commercial law include substantial experience representing franchisees in Hackensack and throughout New Jersey. I am available to represent owners and prospective owners of restaurant franchises such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Five Guys and Subway, as well as franchises in other industries.

Talk To An Experienced Lawyer For Free

Be aware that there are franchise coaches or consultants offering free services. Some are tied to specific franchises and may have ulterior motives. Instead, you should speak with an independent lawyer who has experience in franchise law. I offer free consultations. I welcome you to call 201-442-2730 or email me to set up a meeting.
