Franchise Law

The firm has considerable experience in the representation of franchisors and franchisees in a broad range of industries.

Our representation of franchisors includes advice in connection with: the preparation of Uniform Franchise Offering Circular documents; negotiations with franchisee associations and individual franchisees; the structural alternatives available for new franchises; and compliance with the Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations, as well as the separate registration and disclosure requirements of individual states.

Our representation of nonfranchised businesses includes areas such as developing a franchise system and consulting with franchisors on the content and implementation of operational, procedural and training manuals and advertising programs. Knowledge of this area of the law has also proven invaluable in assisting prospective franchisees to quickly understand the overall franchise relationship in addition to the specific contractual provisions that will apply to them.
