"Antonia counsels a diverse spectrum of clients on corporate and transactional matters, in particular within the franchise and distribution industry. Her practice principally focuses on complex business transactions, ranging in size from public company mergers and acquisitions to the sale of a single-unit franchise. Antonia’s services extend to contract negotiations, equity investments and joint ventures, cross-border transactions, corporate restructuring, financing and lending transactions, and the acquisition or divestiture of assets. Antonia also supports franchise brands in all stages of growth, including preparing franchise disclosure documents and agreements, negotiating and documenting franchise sales, transfers and terminations, and handling the wide array of other issues arising in the evolution of a franchise system.
Antonia’s mission is to overcome each of those challenges by finding results-oriented solutions that are focused on positioning her clients for long-term success and growth.
Prior to joining Cheng Cohen, Antonia practiced at a large firm, where her practice focused on mergers and acquisitions, securities and governance, commercial finance and general corporate matters. Much of Antonia’s passion for business and entrepreneurship also comes from having started her own pet care company, which she operated for two years prior to enrolling in law school."
