Norwich Law Firm Instructed By National Restaurant Chain

Ashton KCJ Solicitors has been instructed by national fish and chip restaurant chain, Harry Ramsden’s.

Harry Ramsden’s, which was established in Yorkshire over 80 years ago, has over 30 outlets around the UK and Ireland. Following a competitive tender process, Ashton KCJ has been instructed to advise the chain on all of its domestic and international franchising. Harry Ramsden’s is embarking on a period of expansion, with plans to launch 50 new ‘quick service’ restaurants around the UK and Ireland.

Joe Teixeira, CEO at Harry Ramsden’s, 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.”

Ashton KCJ has also recently been appointed by Shawarma Xpress, a Bahraini restaurant chain, to advise them in their UK and international roll out.
