Franchises present a number of complicated legal issues. The agreement between the franchisor and franchisee is perhaps the most important thing that can impact the success of a franchised business. Both those who are buying a franchise and those seeking to franchise their business need an experienced attorney to advise them on the process and on an ongoing basis during the business relationship.
A franchise attorney can help you throughout any stage of the process. Here are some of the key stages in a franchising arrangement:
While both parties to any franchising agreement hope that the relationship will go smoothly, there are times when the arrangement has some legal bumps in the road. When this happens, you will need an attorney to help resolve the dispute. Some franchise agreements end up in litigation, and we provide tough and smart representation in franchise lawsuits.
In the best-case scenario, your attorney will advise you of any possible legal issues in the negotiation or review of the franchise agreement, so you can avoid future litigation. We are experienced at reviewing franchise agreements and spotting potential legal problems. When advising franchisors, we can work with the potential franchisees counsel to negotiate the agreement. You need a franchise attorney with the foresight to anticipate pitfalls and help you avoid them.
