In her time at Plave Koch, Amanda works both on transactional and litigation matters. Amanda helps walk clients through the franchise process, and maintain the franchise relationship once established.

She coordinates annual franchise registration filings and renewals for the firm's clients, alongside her co-workers. Further, Amanda helps conduct franchise system due diligence analysis for acquiring entities in merger and acquisition transactions.
