In representing franchisors, Mr. Catuogno has been admitted pro hac vice in more than a dozen federal jurisdictions, diligently protecting the intellectual property and financial interests of his clients on a nationwide basis by collecting post-petition fees, maximizing recovery on pre-petition claims and insuring that post-petition operations comply with the franchise system standards, thereby preserving value for the brand.
