You've come to the right place. Whether you operate a franchise ("franchisee") or own a franchise ("franchisor"), a franchising lawyer can help.
Franchising lawyers assist with things like developing franchise business programs, structuring distribution agreements, and negotiating franchise agreements. They also assist with franchise-related lawsuits involving enforcement, compliance, and non-renewal.
Use FindLaw to hire a local franchising lawyer to handle franchise transactions and disputes.
Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
