A Few of Our Selling + Exiting Clients

My partners and I hired Nate and West Coast Franchise Law to represent us in the sale of 10 Applebee’s Restaurants in Texas; we also needed assistance leasing the real estate to the buyer… We’re glad we trusted them to guide us through the process… Nate calmly and diplomatically sought solutions to issues that arose along the way, avoided silly arguments, gave us solid, practical advice and got our deal done.
