West Coast Franchise Law has represented our company for several years now, helping us with leasing and development. They did a great job helping us grow and when it came time to sell our 35 Burger Kings to a large private equity group, they were there to help us with that too. They’ve been responsive and insightful, adding value to every transaction…They were proactive in seeing issues that might arise and helped to think through solutions and negotiate fair outcomes.
