Franchising can be an attractive way to grow a business. The Federal Trade Commission and many states regulate how franchisors can operate. Our Franchising practice group is experienced in reviewing compliance with these regulatory issues. We know how to obtain national and state-specific registration. We are experienced in drafting franchise agreements and franchise offering circulars.
We make sure that franchisors and franchisees do not overlook important legal areas such as regulatory compliance, trademark protection, acquisition, merger, divestiture and reorganization.
