Oil and Gas Company Franchises/Distributorships

We are recognized throughout New Jersey for our proficiency in retail gasoline station franchises/distributorships. Our attorneys have represented numerous retail motor oil dealers in both litigation and in the sale and purchase of gasoline service stations. The applicable laws and regulations in this area are very complex, controlled by both the federal Petroleum Marketing Practices Act and the New Jersey Franchise Practices Act. You need legal advice from a lawyer who is familiar with these statutes and the underlying case law. We bring this experience and background to every transaction.
