If you are an existing franchisor or franchisee – or are considering becoming one of them, our franchise attorneys can help.

Unlike many franchise law firms, we take a balanced approach by representing both franchisees and franchisors (not of the same system of course). By knowing both sides, our franchise attorneys are better able to help our clients navigate difficult issues. We have a deep understanding of the relationship dynamics that underpin all franchise systems. Many of our partners have held senior leadership positions for national franchise brands and some were franchisees themselves.  That experience has proven invaluable in advocating on behalf of clients.  We know franchising and we can help.

CAP System

In January 2022, after years in development, we have officially introduced our CAP System, which stands for “Client Access Portal”. This unique, custom designed, cloud based system enables franchisors to know at a glance the status of all of their state registrations and how their FDD Update is progressing. CAP, combined with our flat monthly CORE billing, is the most cost effective way for franchisors of all sizes to have an efficient, accurate and simple compliance system.
