Entrepreneurs and franchisors rely on our 40 years of franchising experience and our reasonable rates to guide their franchise systems, whether it's the 1st sale or the 1,000th

We assist clients with a wide range of franchising issues—everything from questions about the benefits and disadvantages of franchising, to preparation and registration of franchise documents, to counseling on franchise relationship issues.

We have over 40 years of franchising experience across a variety of industries, including full-service and quick-service restaurants, hospitality, consumer retail, property maintenance and improvement, automotive, fitness and beauty, medicine and health care, child care and education, and business services.

Our franchise lawyers represent franchisors that have not yet started franchising, or that have only a handful of franchised outlets, to sophisticated franchisors with over 7,000 franchised outlets—a testament to our reasonable rates and experience. As a full-service law firm, we also work closely with our franchise and business litigation attorneys to handle disputes franchisors may have with franchisees, intellectual property attorneys to handle trademark and other proprietary registration and enforcement, and real estate attorneys to handle purchases/sales and leases.
