Jane’s Story – Franchise Dispute

Jane thought she had the chance of a lifetime when she was offered an organic cafe franchise. But hidden costs, franchisor mismanagement and outright deceit about building works meant that hard-working Jane had to close the doors, through no fault of her own, just five months later. She wasn’t eating, wasn’t sleeping, and wasn’t making any money.

With Robert Bryden on her side, Jane was able to pursue the franchisor and sue the solicitor who had drawn up the contract that hadn’t protected her interests. In the end, Robert was able to identify the best avenue for compensation, securing a large payout.

More than the money, the result brought control, freedom and possibilities back into Jane’s life. “From that payout, I was able to move forward with my life.”
