If you are an existing franchisor or franchisee – or are considering becoming one of them, we 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, we 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.

FDD Disclosure System

Check out our custom designed cloud-based software to streamline the franchise sales and compliance system for franchisors. The system enables franchisors to send a link through email that takes candidates to a custom map with a simple red/green interface allowing the candidates to download the correct FDD approved in specific states.
