Developing a Franchise Program - Or Avoiding One


We help clients – both domestic companies and non-U.S. companies seeking to develop in the United States – decide whether franchising is the right expansion method for them. When companies choose franchising to distribute their goods or services, our franchise attorneys work closely with them to structure their programs and to develop user-friendly franchise documents. If companies prefer to avoid creating a franchise, we work with them to structure their agreements to escape franchise law coverage to the extent possible. In addition to assisting new franchisors, our Franchise attorneys routinely overhaul clients’ franchise documents to achieve the particular franchisor’s business objectives while incorporating best practices and state-of-the-art drafting techniques.
