"Rob Vinson has been critical to the success of our franchise system. He provides us with timely advice and asistance at every stage of the franchise life cycle. From initial concept to FDD drafting, from compliance through termination, our brand relies on Mr. Vinson's command of the complicated legal framework that applies to creating and running a franchise system in multiple states. Because of his expertise, common sense, attention to detail, and transparent and fair billing practices, I consider him an invaluable part of our team here at Dutch Bros. Coffee."
"Rob has been our franchise attorney since we began offering Stork Vision franchises in 2007. He was instrumental in ensuring our documents where fully compliant with FTC requirements. He has since been a key player in obtaining state registrations in a timely and cost effective manner. We also rely on Rob for his advice and expertise regarding all other legal matters pertaining to our franchise. We would not be where we are today without his legal guidance and support . We highly recommend Rob to any franchisor, whether they are new or already established."
"Rob's experience and knowledge are very evident in any discussion of a franchising- or distribution-related issue. Rob's real value, however, comes from his ability to translate that knowledge into meaningful, practical courses of action."
"Rob Vinson, in a single word, phenomenal. I had a franchise system that needed updated disclosure documents within about 10 days (during the Christmas holidays) for an upcoming meeting with a prospective franchisee. Rob graciously accepted my project with such a tight timeline and delivered over and above my expectations. He provided me with much better franchise documents than I had before. He was extremely diligent and fair in all his dealings with me. I will definitely be using Rob on an ongoing basis for all my franchise legal needs."
"I cannot begin to describe how grateful we are to have found someone as knowledgeable and with as much integrity as Rob Vinson. If there were more people like him in the legal profession, it would change the entire reputation of the profession for the better. We were very apprehensive about franchising before talking to Rob. But he explained to us in plain English what our options were, and his patience with us was above and beyond what I have ever experienced with other lawyers."
“Rob’s professionalism, ability, and unparalleled skill provides our team with supreme confidence in the quality of our franchise documents and processes. As a longtime client, I have and will continue to recommend the Vinson Franchise Law Firm to any businessperson or company that utilizes the franchise business model.”
"We have used Rob as our franchise attorney since before our inception in 1999. We first consulted with him about the steps we needed to take in order to position our company to franchise. Later, when we were ready, Rob helped us set up our corporate structure, prepared all of our franchise documents, reviewed our operations manual, trained our staff on the legal requirements of franchise sales, and registered our franchise in the necessary states. He also helped us quickly and favorably resolve a business dispute [with a franchisee] that could have been a real problem for our system. We are very pleased with the quality of the legal services Rob provides."
"As a start-up franchisor, I highly recommend Rob Vinson. He is extremely professional and knowledgable, and I appreciate how he is able to explain each step of the franchising process in simple, understandable terms. We work with Rob from a distance, and I have been quite impressed by his accessability, both via telephone and email. He has been incredibly responsive to the particular needs of our small and relatively unconventional retail company, and able to trouble-shoot issues specific to our franchisees. Thanks to Rob, we got our first four franchises off the ground in a matter of weeks . . . and we are still growing strong. In short, we couldn't have franchised our business without Rob!"
"Rob Vinson is a lawyer who knows the franchising business backwards. His fees are very reasonable and because he works one on one with his clients he builds a personal relationship with them making him an integral member of the team. Unlike the public image of lawyers, Rob is honest and has the integrity to advise when matters are outside of his field of expertise instead of him pretending to be the knowledge on all matters pertaining to the law and giving you advice on matters he is not an expert in! I have no hesitation in recommending Rob Vinson in the capacity of Franchise Law!"
"I had the opportunity to work with Rob Vinson during the launch and expansion of an International Franchise in the US. Rob developed the US FDD's, provided guidance to the Franchisor on FTC regulations and assisted with the development of the franchise sales training curriculum. Rob is a seasoned professional with a strong background in all aspects of franchising and a skilled franchise law attorney."
Sue Sidwell Open2view master franchisee Reno, Nevada
"I have enjoyed working with Rob Vinson for about 10 years now. During that time, Rob was always very timely and thorough with his work. If you want a proficient, knowledgeable attorney who will always be there when you need him, then Rob Vinson is your man. I cannot say enough good things about the service Rob has provided our company over the years."
"We hired Rob to review a franchise agreement. His in-depth knowledge of franchise law and his sound advice helped us make a decision on whether or not to purchase the franchise. We would highly recommend Rob!"
