Franchise Attorneys

Legal advisors to grow your business through franchising

We represent businesses in franchising. We'll help you start franchising, and then handle initial and annual registration and disclosure requirements and advise on relations with franchisees.

New Franchisors

Looking to franchise your business?

For entrepreneurs looking to expand from Main Street to every street, we advise on structuring franchise programs and complying with state and federal laws that apply to the offer or sale of franchises and the relationship with franchisees. Franchising is a way to grow your business to multiple locations by granting others the right to open a business under your brand name, in exchange for fees.
