Franchising

A franchise is where a successful business, called a franchisor, decides to expand by letting others, called franchisees, use its brand name and business methods. We work with franchisors and franchisees in all aspects of the franchise relationship.

We especially enjoy working with small, start-up franchisors who are embarking on franchising for the first time. We walk them through the numerous legal requirements so that they launch their franchise systems on the right footing. Among the things we work on for a start-up franchisor is developing the Franchise Disclosure Document, called the FDD, mandated by the Federal Trade Commission, along with the franchise agreement and the critical operations manual. We also take steps to protect the franchisor’s trademarks and other intellectual property.
