We understand that franchising is about growing your business, elevating your brand, and building a winning organization. To do that, you need the right legal support, resources for growth, and strategies to win at franchising.

The problem is that most emerging brands don’t have the right growth strategies, are legally exposed when it comes to franchise compliance, or just don’t know what they are missing. Franchise brands that try to expand without having the right compliance and support systems in place end up frustrated, overwhelmed, or even on the verge of franchise failure.

Your brand is too important to not have the legal support and tools it needs to thrive.

For over 20 years, The Internicola Law Firm, P.C., has been helping numerous emerging brands just like yours build, expand, and protect their franchise systems with proven strategies, guidance, and know-how that has earned us recognition for flipping the script on what a law firm can do for you. Established by Avvo-rated attorney Charles N. Internicola, who is nationally recognized by Super Lawyers®, we are a firm built specifically for emerging brands and we represent entrepreneurs, founders, management teams, and private equity through all stages of the business and franchise development lifecycle.

The Internicola Law Firm, P.C., is a law firm with the heart of an entrepreneur. We’re business owners and franchisors, too. Our team is obsessed with seeing emerging brands win in the marketplace and win with franchising. We combine our legal expertise with winning franchise industry know-how to give you an advantage in the market.

If you are an emerging brand ready for a new winning franchise compliance and development strategy, we want to work with you. Contact us today at (718) 979-8688 or fill out the form.

In the meantime, this website is full of articles, tools, and FREE resources that will help any emerging brand understand what it takes to win with franchising.
