Newhouse & Arnold Solicitors dealt with my franchise matter efficiently and with integrity. David Newhouse's experience in franchise law was exceptional. His service and fixed fee service approach was excellent. I will definitely recommend Newhouse & Arnold Solicitors to my family and friends, and I look forward to use his service again for my next franchise purchase.
Tom Rusli, Crust Franchisee

I take this opportunity to thank Newhouse and Arnold Solicitors Franchise Lawyers for your diligence during the whole franchise business purchase, especially when things started to go "wrong" pre-settlement. Your services have been excellent and extremely cost efficient. I will definitely recommend your services to friends and relations.

After engaging and dismissing numerous solicitors over the last ten years, we have finally found 'our solicitor' in David Newhouse. David is thorough, efficient and above all communicates freely in simple language. In a recent purchase of a franchise, we suddenly found a minefield of potential risks expose themselves. David calmly collected all the information and laid out our options clearly. He kept us fully informed of changes in the situation at all times.
Alan Popely & Janita Rankin, Howards Storage Franchisee

I would not hesitate to recommend your firm. Having been in a difficult situation with the Franchisor, your advice and guidance was instrumental in identifying an exit strategy and enabling me to execute it quickly and efficiently.
