We represent select single and multi unit franchisees, area developers, and master franchisees. We provide in depth analysis of franchise agreements, disclosure documents from the perspective of managing risks, and negotiating the issues most critical to the franchisee. We add value to franchise purchases in assisting them with corporate formations, lease negotiations, non-compete enforcement and the like.
We represent many large established franchisors, business opportunity sellers, licensor and distribution systems. For many clients, we serve as “Outside General Counsel” managing and assisting them with a wide variety of legal issues that impact their franchise operations. We have successful and happy clients, who trust us with their legal matters, and value our insights. Our motto is to be knowledgeable, practical and responsive.
OUTSIDE GENERAL COUNSEL
Our passion is helping small and medium business owners. In-house general counsel is expensive and often more than the average business needs. Outside general counsel sometimes isn’t enough and can cost a fortune when you’re paying by the minute for every call, email, and meeting. That’s why we offer Outside In-House General Counsel. Flat monthly rates with all the service you need, and none of the stuff you don’t.
