Areas of Franchise Law We Cover
Buying a Franchise / Agreement Review
- If you are thinking about buying a franchise, there will be many issues, documents, and agreements that must first be considered before making such a huge decision. Our firm can guide you through the primary steps and help you navigate the process.
Real Estate Control & Lease Review
- When it comes to the location of your franchise, our experienced franchise attorney in Los Angeles can guide you through the selection of a profitable location and help you review any lease agreements. It is our goal to minimize your liability so you can focus on starting up your franchise.
Breach of Contract
- At the core of every business, company, or franchise will be some type of contract. In fact, nearly every type of business or commercial transaction is based on the terms established in a contract. When a contract has been violated—either due to simple misunderstanding or intentional harm—you need to seek legal assistance before the situation escalates.
Fraud & Misrepresentation
- It is not uncommon to see fraud and misrepresentation in the business world, including among franchisees and franchisors. If you believe that you have been the victim of some sort of misrepresentation in a contract or in an agreement, consult our firm.
Termination / Non-Renewal
- One of the most effective ways to terminate a franchise is to sell the business. If you need to sell a franchise or terminate or cancel a franchise agreement at the end of the term through non-renewal, our firm can assist you. The process is complex, so it is best to consult a professional.
- When you need assistance in organizing a franchisee association, our firm can provide effective services for your franchise. Franchisee associations can provide strength and establish cooperative platforms, so planning for the future and communication within your company will be essential to maintaining smooth and conflict-free business operations.
Selling a Franchise
- When you want to sell your franchise location, it can be overwhelming to sort through all of the legalities and key details. How do you know if you are minimizing liability if something goes wrong? Let our firm be your legal guide from start to finish, and you can brush all worries about selling your franchise aside.
