Managing Franchise Relationships

Overview

We advise franchisors on their contractual rights and obligations as well as restrictions imposed by franchise relationship laws and other laws, including enforcement of system standards, renewal, and termination of franchise rights and noncompetition covenants, among others. We also work with franchisor field, accounting, and corporate staff to identify monetary and operational defaults, provide formal notices of default, negotiate resolution of the defaults, and, where necessary, proceed to termination and enforcement of post-termination obligations.
