“There is nothing permanent except change.” – Heraclitus
Recently, I announced that I would be leaving Gordon & Rees to re-establish my own franchise law firm, Harold L. Kestenbaum, P.C. Prior to joining Gordon & Rees, I successfully operated my own franchise law firm and I am excited to be doing so again.
While working with Gordon & Rees, I established many long-lasting relationships, for which I am extremely grateful, and I will have an ongoing referral relationship with them. It is with their full support that I am moving forward with this venture.
Ultimately, my decision was based on the many projects in my practice that I would like to work on, and felt these could only be accomplished as a smaller, more nimble firm. I believe this will allow me to provide the highest level of legal counsel to franchisors.
Specializing in franchise law for more than 35 years, I have seen many changes in federal and state laws and regulations pertaining to owning and operating a franchise business. From well established to those starting out, franchise laws can be difficult to navigate, as legal requirements and state-by-state variations for franchisors can be tricky. Having a seasoned franchise attorney at your side can eliminate many of the legal headaches franchisors endure.
My new firm officially launches today, June 1. My office address will remain:
Harold L. Kestenbaum, P.C., 90 Merrick Avenue, Suite 601, East Meadow, NY 11554.
My phone number will remain 516-745-0099.
As of today, I have a new email address: HKestenbaum@hlkpc.com.
I look forward to continuing my work in representing franchisors of all kinds, and I look forward to continuing my legal endeavors with existing clients and helping new clients with all of their franchise legal needs.
