“As a new franchisor we carried out a decent level of due dilligence and felt there was a clear benefit in working with a bfa approved lawyer. Having looked at three companies, we selected Goldstein Legal based on; their in-depth experience in franchising, an understand of the the children’s learning sector that we operate in, flexibility to agree a price for a range of legal requirements we had.

Having recently completed the first phase of work, including the essential Franchise Agreement, I would have no hesitation recommending Goldstein Legal to other franchisors.”
