Law firm instructed by national restaurant chain

Ashton KCJ Solicitors have been taken instruction by national fish and chips restaurant chain Harry Ramsden’s.

The Yorkshire based chain was established over 80 years ago and has over 30 outlets around the UK and Ireland. Ashton KCJ, following a competitive tender process, has been instructed to advise the chain on all its domestic and international franchising. Harry Ramsden’s is embarking on a period of expansion, with plans to launch fifty new ‘quick service’ restaurants around the UK and Ireland.

Joe Teixeria, CEO at Harry Ramsdens said: “Ashton KCJ has a proven track record in the franchising sector and we are looking forward to working with the whole team. We look forward to evolving this much loved and iconic British brand into the nation’s favourite fish and chip proposition.”

John Chambers, head of the Franchising team at Ashton KCJ commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Harry Ramsden’s and to be adding such a well recognised brand to our growing portfolio of local, national and international clients. Being a Yorkshireman myself, this is one client which is particularly close to my heart.”
