Our Cases

Business Contracts & Agreements

Successful Negotiation of 4 Franchises for Client in Erie County, New York

Our client had never owned or operated a franchise before. They came to us for assistance with the negotiation and review of a letter of intent, and the negotiation of a franchise disclosure document (FDD) and franchise agreement (FA). This story is exceptionally special to the firm because it involves the founding partner, Andrea A. Willis, and her husband.
Business Organization & Transactions

Successful Formation of Nonprofit and Business in Buffalo, New York

Our client approached us to form a nonprofit (501c3) to run their charitable initiative. They were unsure of whether to simultaneously also form a business to support the nonprofit. We walked them through a cohesive strategy that will enable both entities to prosper, filed the paperwork on their behalf, and guided them toward launching operations. Both entities continue to thrive.
Other Services

Successful Negotiation of Franchise Disclosure Document and Franchise Agreement, Saving Client 50% of Purchase Price in Buffalo, New York

We effectively negotiated the terms of an “unmodifiable” set of franchise documents, saving our client fifty percent off the purchase price. We removed language that was detrimental to our client’s long-term success and modified the personal guaranty so it could be lifted after the satisfactory completion of an earnout period.
Business Contracts & Agreements

Successful Negotiation of Lease for Restaurant in Buffalo, New York

Our client came to us to do a quick lease review to make sure their interests were protected. Luckily, our client reached out to us before they executed the lease, as it was heavily one-sided against them with terms that could have destroyed their business.‍
License Applications

Successful Approval from New York State Liquor Authority for On-Premises Liquor License in Sullivan County, New York

Our client owned and operated a tavern in Sullivan County during the summer months using one-day beer and wine temporary permits. After applying for, and being denied, a full on-premises liquor license, they came to us for help. Without a full license from the NYSLA, they would be unable to operate and could not afford to stay in business.
