Nina has worked with Jo Jingles Ltd as my legal adviser to the business for nearly 12 years. During that time, she has helped me make decisions on how to deal with breaches of Franchise Contracts; Terminations of such breaches and also in how to deal with any queries that have arisen from potential new Franchisees prior to joining Jo Jingles. She has also given me sound advice on changes in laws which have led to several amendments to my Franchise Contracts, and this has given me confidence that I am getting up to date advice and guidance on all matters of a legal nature that affect my business, both now and in the future.

Nina Moran-Watson has acted as my solicitor since we began to franchise Bright & Beautiful in June 2010. She has been very supportive, encouraging and helpful during our first year in Franchising. I don't hesitate to pick up the phone if I have any questions for her. She has been professional, but very approachable and friendly.
Rachel Ray Director
Bright & Beautiful UK Ltd
As a relatively new franchisor, I was initially dependent upon advice, recommendations and direction from my peers and friends within the industry. I was instantly impressed that your name was consistently suggested to me as the one person I should speak with concerning all matters legal. I am so pleased I followed the advice and met with you to discuss how we could work together.
To begin with you re-wrote the Franchise Agreement for Raring2go! You did so incredibly well, speedily and accurately and never seemed to mind when I asked questions (many many times). You made the task straightforward, painless and if I may say so, cost effective. You always respond quickly and authoritatively and I have now learned to wait until I have fully digested your words before taking action. I have come across many people in 'franchising' since we began our journey, but none thus far who I trust as much as you.

Nina initially prepared Little Kickers UK "standard" franchise documentation, and since then has developed our standard resale agreement and international master franchise documents. On the rare occasions we have had to refer back to the documents Nina prepared for us, they have always been 100% watertight. It's been very reassuring to us to know that this is the case, particularly when we are trying to enter new markets where we have no previous experience. Nina has always exceeded my expectations in terms of the service she provides. In addition to providing franchise legal advice, the depth of her industry knowledge enables her to give very balanced, sensible advice around all aspects of franchising. Nina is always friendly and approachable, and has a no-nonsense approach to what she does.
Managing Director Little Kickers Group
You have been fundamental in providing us with a plain English simple and "to the point" franchise agreement which has facilitated our business expansion while keeping careful control of the legal set up costs. We now have eleven of your franchise agreements in place.

Nina is a pleasure to work with. She quickly understands our requirements and is astute enough to keep an eye on commercial considerations whilst delivering first class advice. She is a key member of our development team.
Nina has provided an invaluable service to our prospective franchisees. We have used Nina to offer advice and guidance to incoming franchisees on many occasions. She works to the clients timescales and offers a quality service to our network. We would recommend Nina's services to other franchisors and franchisees within the industry without any hesitation.
Kelly Chambers I Franchise and Operations Director
Dream Doors Ltd - "New Life For Old Kitchens"
We have been working with Nina Moran-Watson for almost 2 years and it has been lovely for us to work with a woman who has a relaxed and friendly approach. The franchise world can be an intimidating place; it is very much a suited and booted, male dominated world and as women franchisors with a franchise model that appeals mainly to women, we sometimes felt a little lost! Nina has certainly helped us to feel at home with franchising and is always on hand to guide and help.

Debutots Early Years Drama
The management team of The Franchise Management Centre has over 50 years combined experience within the franchise industry, throughout those 50 years we had worked with many professional advisors and some of the best within the franchise industry. When it was time to appoint a franchise solicitor for The Local Bookkeeper (our original name), there was no hesitation in appointing Nina Moran-Watson. Nina’s experience is second to none, a testament of which, is her role as legal adviser to the BFA's Quality Standards Committee. The level of service is highly personal, she has become an extension of the management team and a true asset the business. We would recommend Nina to any franchise brand, old or new.
Alex King Chief Executive Officer
The Franchise Management Centre
We contacted Nina in a time conscious situation. We not only had aggressive deadlines to complete but also complicated and far reaching contractual matters to be advised on. Right from the initial contact with Nina our expectations were fully managed - Nina not only completely fulfilled the requirements but exceeded them and met the deadlines. The quality of work delivered and professionalism were excellent - We also found the cost to be very competitive. I have and will recommend Nina to others looking for professionalism, value and quality.
Lee Hamilton, Managing Director & Franchise Owner
Nina Moran-Watson provided me with excellent service in checking a franchise agreement. I needed some advice on a franchise agreement in a week! Nina proved very flexible in dealing with my request, providing a detailed response via email in a couple of days along with a copy in the post within a week. The price charged was very competitive, particularly for legal advice specialising in franchise law and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Expense Reduction Analysts
Just a few lines to confirm that I was very grateful for the service you provided to me. You were very quick to complete the franchise agreement review and the points that you raised were more than valid. The process was easy and the cost was very reasonable (having shopped about before-hand, I can confirm that there are much more expensive solicitors providing a similar service). I would not hesitate to hire your services again or recommend them to any prospective clients. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Gas-elec have been recommending the services of Nina Moran-Watson for some 8 years to its franchisees. The feedback we have from them is that she is always very professional and her service is fast and thorough.

I've seen a dozen or so franchising lawyers' reviews of franchise agreements second-hand through our new franchisees; Moran-Watson's is as clear and comprehensive as any, and from what I can gather she offers perhaps the best value for money in this field.
Action International East of England
We have worked with Nina for a number of years - she provides a thorough and professional contract vetting service for our customers. Nina is highly regarded and well respected within the franchise industry.
Cathryn A Hayes
Head of Franchising
HSBC Bank plc
We were recommended to Nina by both the British Franchise Association and another franchisor. We spoke to another of her clients before we decided she would be the best person for us. We found her to be very approachable as well as very professional. As Nina is both a solicitor and a franchise consultant we found this very useful - but the best thing about Nina is that she is so easy to talk to and very understanding.
NatWest has had a long standing relationship with Nina Moran-Watson over many years. On the one hand she has helped a number of our customers develop their franchise plans to enable them to become a franchisor and on the other has given guidance to those looking to invest in a franchise by reviewing their legal agreement.
