"Jenny recently advised me on the sale of my franchise business. I've been working with Jenny for a few years, so I'm confident she knows the franchise sector very well.
"Dealing with a franchisor as well as a buyer can be tricky, as there is an extra set of concerns and personalities to take into account, but Jenny’s experience meant that she didn't just point out problems, but had the answers too.
"I have always found Jenny to be very professional, yet also easy and clear to talk with, even when under pressure to conclude a deal, with the added problems of deadlines and legal jargon.
"I would gladly use Jenny's help in the future, so therefore I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a franchise lawyer."
