Our Franchise Negotiation Services

We believe that working together in franchise negotiations will achieve great successes, and we are not only talking about cooperating franchisees. Many franchised companies are controlled by boards of directors that are accompanied by an in-house team of business lawyers. When matters become too complex for private counsel, you can depend on us to step in, work side-by-side with your staff, and discover the right options to resolve the franchise dispute at hand.

Legal concerns and documentation for franchisors we can handle include:

  • Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD)
  • Contracting agreements with franchisees
  • Stock or asset sales and purchases
  • Contracts with third-party vendors
  • Franchise branch termination
  • Enforcement of franchise standards
  • Intellectual property protection
  • Confidentiality and non-compete agreements

Corporate and Business Law Concerns for Franchises

Organizing and running a franchise will put even veteran business owners and company heads into unique legal territory. By offering your trademarks, brand, name, and more to franchisees, you put yourself in the potential risk of profit loss or defamation if the franchise does not uphold their contracts and run their business well. Only through preparation and planning with a complex litigation attorney who understands the base functions and the advanced utilities of a corporation can you hope to foresee and prevent complications regarding financing, leasing, mergers, etc. Should a problem arise, either through a party’s mistake or due to unpreventable means, you must also be confident that your legal representative can resolve the dispute amicably before it damages your business relations with your franchisees.
