You Should Consult With a Lawyer About Your Franchise Agreement

You Should Consult With a Lawyer About Your Franchise Agreement

An experienced franchise lawyer will regularly represent both franchisors and potential franchisees in drafting and reviewing agreements that set clients up for success.  If you’re considering franchising your business, you know it’s a large and complex undertaking governed by both federal and state law.  On the other hand, if you’re looking to buy into an already-existing franchise, you’re faced with mountains of paperwork, including franchise disclosure documents, contracts, personal guarantees, and other agreements.  A qualified business law lawyer can assist you through every step of the process.

Franchise agreement lawyers work with a broad client base, and they have experience advising clients in a range of industries, including retail businesses franchises, personal and professional service franchises, mental healthcare and medical franchises, and cutting-edge technology franchises.  Whether you’re opening a drone photography franchise with a national reach or you’re considering buying into a local yoga franchise, a qualified lawyer can navigate the complex waters of federal and state franchise law.

A review of a franchise agreement isn’t the first and last step, however.  An experienced lawyer can assist you with: 

  • Franchise disclosure document review
  • Drafting and reviewing franchise disclosure documents & franchise manuals
  • Creation of non-compete agreements and non-disclosure agreements
  • Franchisee litigation for failure to train, wrongful seizure of royalties, breach of territory covenants, fraud, and unfair & deceptive practices
  • Franchisor defense litigation for breach of franchise agreement claims, misrepresentation and fraud claims, and violation of non-compete agreements

If you are thinking of franchising your business or buying into an existing franchise, contact the franchise agreement attorneys at Weaver, Bennett & Bland today at (704) 844-1400.
