I was faced with a difficult position in dealing with a Franchisor who was threatening “nuclear war” in relation to a dispute. I originally contacted a local solicitor who was clearly not competent in this area of the law. I subsequently contacted David Newhouse who is an accredited specialist in Business Law and is also a specialist in franchise law. His knowledge and skills in assisting in the resolution of the case through mediation were exemplary. He gave me top notch advice. Thank you
It gives me pleasure to provide this testimonial for David Newhouse of Newhouse and Arnold Solicitors. David L.

We had a franchise dispute that Newhouse & Arnold Solicitors assisted in. David Newhouse is well-versed in franchise law and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a franchise lawyer. He helped us enormously with our franchise business.

Newhouse & Arnold Solicitors’ franchise lawyers made the entire process of purchasing a Jetts Fitness franchise an easy and enjoyable experience. In particular, Nick Birbas offered timely and sound legal advice and he was available to answer my questions and guide me through the process. I would not hesitate in recommending Nick and his team to anyone who is considering purchasing a franchise business.

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.
