Working with . . .Amanda who creates agreements for Franchisors provided invaluable perspective into what is important to the Franchisor. That perspective helped me focus on what was truly important to all parties. Amanda’s knowledge of not only the literal interpretation of the agreement and FDD but also her understanding of what actually happens in the real-life application of such agreements was impressive and helpful. Most importantly, Amanda expertly negotiated a very tricky clause. When negotiations were at an impasse and I wasn’t moving forward, Amanda made one quick phone call and within 30 minutes, agreeable documents reflecting exactly what we intended were in my inbox. Her skill has potentially saved me millions of dollars. Amanda is also a joy to work with and her upbeat, positive demeanor during what can be a tense experience was a delight. I can’t say enough good things about Amanda and my experience working with her. I will send anyone looking for a franchise attorney to her without hesitation.”
