Franchising is an excellent way to expand your business.
Buying a franchise is the biggest investment you will ever make...
Jim helped my wife and I navigate a franchise in Ohio, along with assisting us with the purchase of our building. Jim has extensive knowledge in Franchising and was spot on throughout the whole process. We would recommend Jim for any of your needs as he had a network of resources in addition to his knowledge and experience.
I can't say enough good things about, Jim, and the legal services he provides. He's extremely knowledgeable, responsive, practical, and efficient. He doesn't waste time or money. I have worked with numerous attorneys over the past thirty years and I have to say Jim is one of the very best. He has become a key advisor to me and my business.
New business relationship but so far top notch professional and all around good guy!
Jim reviewed a franchise agreement and FDD for me as I prepared to invest in a business. We hadn't worked together before and I had no previous experience with franchising documents. Jim was both professional and easy to work with. He was very responsive and made the review of long and technical legal documents easy to understand. I'd be happy to work with Jim again.
Brilliant franchise attorney! The attention to detail, preparation and excellent communication exceeded my expectations. Jim's experience and knowledge radiated through all our conversations. Highly recommended!!
Jim has been instrumental throughout my years in business. He has worked on minor entanglements as well as more complicated legal issues. You are kept up-to-date and given a thorough explanation of where you are and what comes next in the process. I always have peace of mind knowing he is working to resolve problems in the most expedient manner as well as in my best interest.
I was recently involved in a franchise contract dispute in the healthcare field. I had to switch attorneys in the beginning due to a conflict in the case. The second attorney I went to created a lot of frustration and was not a huge help. Then I reached out to some friends who had gone through similar cases and everyone pointed me in the direction of Jim Meaney.
