  • Robyn Vincent

    As a small business thriving and wanting to extend my business to create a franchise model, I was advised to seek the services of a specialist franchise solicitor. Marianne came highly recommended and guided and instructed me through every step of the way.

    Her expertise, care and extensive knowledge and experience was reassuring and sincerely appreciated. She not only produced the franchise documents and legal requirements for my business, she has mentored me, guided and introduced me to some incredible and like-minded women. I cannot recommend Legalite highly enough!
