Franchising Your Business

Internicola Law Firm For successful business owners, franchising represents an opportunity to expand and improve your business. By "franchising your business" you will be leveraging the business assets that you have already built - your brand, business systems and know how - and monetizing these assets through a franchise system that will grant franchisees the right to duplicate and expand your business. Through our "National Franchise Launch Program", Charles N. Internicola and the attorneys at The Internicola Law Firm, assist business owners throughout the United States in converting their businesses into successful franchise systems. Learn More.

Business Litigation

Authority for Business Litigation

In New York and New Jersey the unfortunate reality of business and partnerships is that lawsuits and litigation are all too common. In many cases lawsuits result from poorly drafted partnership agreements, franchise agreements and business contracts. Sometime litigation is the result of unfair business practices such as trademark infringement and breach of contract and non-compete agreements. If you are faced with a business dispute, New York and New Jersey business lawyer, Charles N. Internicola, can help. Contact Mr. Internicola at (800) 976 4904.

Business development and expansion requires relationships with suppliers, distributors and, in certain instances, licensing and private label agreements. At the Internicola Law Firm, PC for both service based businesses and product based businesses, we have developed extensive representation programs and day-to-day counseling respecting the development and implementation of licensing, distribution and private label relationships.

Confidentiality & Non-Compete

In New York and New Jersey Mr. Internicola, Esq. represents individuals and businesses in litigation involving non-compete agreements and covenants. Non-Compete agreements are enforceable, but do require scrutiny and, depending on your position (i.e., as the party attempting to enforce or the party defending against), require a carefully planned litigation strategy.
