Our Story

Our story started 25 years ago.

Founded by Charles N. Internicola, Esq., Charles’ franchise experience started early on as he helped national brands navigate franchising, licensing, and private label expansion. Since that time, Charles has been trusted counsel for franchisors, entrepreneurs, publicly traded, and privately held companies across the country and internationally.

Joined by Brian Lincer, Esq. and our dedicated team, today, were a franchise only law firm dedicated to providing growing brands with the legal support they need, resources to grow, and strategies to win at franchising.

A National Reputation

We’ve earned a national reputation as go-to franchise counsel for growing brands.

In addition to our legal services, our publications, webinars, and franchise registration guides are recognized as some of the most authoritative information in the franchise industry and are relied on by franchisors and franchise law firms across the country.

We know what it means to be a franchisor.

Our founders we’re also franchisors. In 2014 Charles, Brian, and our team took over a struggling franchise brand that was faced with litigation, regulatory, and branding issues. After acquiring the brand our team resolved all the legal issues, stabilized franchisee relations, and navigated the system through a successful rebranding and redevelopment. In 2019 we sold the brand to a national company and, today, it continues to grow.

We know what it means to be a franchisor and that’s why we’re also committed to providing our clients with resources and tools to help them grow.

Our Franchise Growth Mastermind community is a forum that shares best practices and, today, hosts and connects over 800 franchise professionals across the industry. Our franchise guides and interactive registration maps are relied on by franchisors and franchise law firms and, our Great Return Digital Franchise Summit, was the first-ever pandemic-related digital franchise conference focused on franchise sales and franchise development best practices and growth strategies.

We’re one of only a few law firms in the country to exclusively practice franchise law and the only franchise law firm that builds franchise development, sales, and growth resources into everything we do.
