Areas of Practice
You've worked hard to build your business to the point where you could franchise it. Let us manage your compliance with federal franchise laws and state registration regulations. You're the best at what you do, and we strive to be the best at what we do. Together, we can pave the way for your franchise's success. We draft and revise franchise disclosure documents, file and maintain federal trademarks, draft and file annual updates, file state registrations and renewals, negotiate and terminate franchisees, and disclose prospective franchisees. Take advantage of our years of experience.
So you've expressed interest in buying into a franchise and they've "disclosed" you by sending you a 100, 200, or even 300+ page "franchise disclosure document" and a franchise agreement. Yes, this is probably the biggest contract you'll ever sign. No, this is not something you should do on your own! Let us review your FDD or as many FDDs of franchises you're considering. We'll highlight red flags and provide negotiation points. Trust us - we draft FDDs, so we know what to look for. We've also reviewed over 300 FDDs for prospective franchisees like yourself.
We love entrepreneurs because we are entrepreneurs. Your spirit, drive, and motivation are what set you apart from the 9-5 masses. Franchising your business is, frankly, a great way to turn your business into a money-making machine. If you've got this great idea that works, there's a chance you can get other people to buy into that idea. It's important to note that franchising is a huge investment of capital and time. However, we regularly work with small businesses in developing their brand and operation so that they are positioned to franchise when the time is right.
