3 November 2011 – Franchise testimonial (Mail Boxes Etc.)
Approximately three years ago I was interested in purchasing a franchise business known at that time as MBE Business Services Centre (now known as Mail Boxes Etc.) and my accountant advised that I engage the services of a specialist in the field of franchise law.
I made a number of enquiries to identify specialists in franchise law and many of the people that I spoke to recommend Steven Prassas of Comino Prassas Solicitors.
There were numerous legal and business issues that were required to be determined and concluded and the knowledge and expertise of Mr Prassas was invaluable in evaluating and resolving matters to my satisfaction.
Mr Prassas was comprehensive in his review and explanation of the Franchise Agreement, Franchise Disclosure document and other paperwork provided by the franchisor and I found that he was very knowledgeable and efficient in his responses to all the enquiries that I had and I would highly recommend his services to those people who are considering buying a franchise business or entering into a Franchise Agreement.
26 October 2011 – Franchise testimonial (Australian Poker League and TheBestOf)
Several years ago I was in need of a specialist franchise lawyer with many years’ experience to review a franchise agreement I had in place at that time. I reviewed the FCA list of recommended lawyers with franchising experience and contacted Steven Prassas from that list.
At the time, my issue was quite pressing and Steven’s prompt attention and comprehensive understanding of franchising greatly assisted me to deal with the issues expeditiously and knowledgably, something that greatly assisted my position at the time.
Since then, I have renewed a franchise agreement and entered into a new franchise system and have used the services of Steven Prassas on all occasions.
Steven has a comprehensive understanding of franchising and his in-depth knowledge and extensive experience has greatly assisted me in all of the franchising matters I have encountered. His insight into franchise systems and potential problems is outstanding in my opinion and has assisted me greatly on several occasions.
Steven has reviewed new agreements on my behalf, advised me on agreement renewals, advised me on mutual franchisor/franchisee obligations during difficult times in those relationships, and he has always demonstrated honestly, integrity and a thorough knowledge in his field of expertise. I have also required Steven to negotiate on my behalf on several occasions and his judicious approach and in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of franchising has ensured favorable results on each occasion.
Steven is both prompt and efficient when dealing with matters and coupled with his obvious experience on all aspects of franchising has ensured that I will be a client well into the future.
I strongly recommend Steven Prassas to anybody needing a franchise specialist.
