Messina was featured in a recent ROI NJ article entitled “Franchise Factor: Working with both sides of these businesses is lucrative specialty for law firms.” The article focuses on how "franchise law issues run the gamut" noting that "[t]he complexity of navigating all this — combined with the sheer number of franchise businesses in the state, a figure which continues to grow — has made expertise in franchise law more in-demand..."
