I have spent most of my career in franchise sales, primarily in the hospitality industry. I've sold over 1.000 restaurant franchises for Steak n Shake, Tony Roma's, Friendly's and Bennigan's. Additionally, I've sold or disposed of many distressed real estate properties at Ground Round, Country Kitchen and other brands.
I have a J. D. from Western New England College School of Law, which I use in my real estate and franchise development transactions. Contracts, UCC law, leases, purchase & sale agreements, Franchise Disclosure Documents, license contracts and other transactional instruments are involved in nearly every business deal.
Specialties: Law, Real Estate, Negotiation and Settlement Advocacy, Franchise Sales, Entrepreneurship and Management.
