"I had the pleasure of working with Patrick Maslyn for a period of approximately 4 years while I was in the capacity of CFO for Volvo Rents, a franchisor in the start-up phase of its operations. Patrick was instrumental in developing our franchising system and the legal framework which has stood us in good stead from the beginning. Patrick is extremely responsive, does excellent quality work, very patient and pragmatic with our never-ending questions and issues, and generally unflappable. I would not hesitate to go to him should I find myself in the franchising business again."
