Guidance for all types of
Franchisor Legal Issues

Contract Drafting

Contracts with your franchisees (also known as franchise agreements) are a fundamental element of the franchise business model. Franchise agreements will typically describe profit splitting, the rights and responsibilities of each party, and the process of transferring or terminating the relationship.

Any one of these elements can dramatically impact the profits a franchisor receives. Savvy business owners make sure to work with experienced attorneys to draft their franchise agreements.

Systems Analysis and Evaluation

Systems are essential to keep your franchise locations consistent. Franchises develop and implement systems such as training and support programs, operations manuals, marketing materials, sales processes, and general management resources.

These systems are often governed by laws in the franchise site’s state or jurisdiction, which can pose complications for franchisors with locations in many places. To ensure that your franchise’s systems are in compliance with all the necessary laws, we highly recommend that you have your systems reviewed regularly and privately.

Filings and Registration Maintenance

In many states, franchise registration documents, including franchise agreements and the various mandated disclosures, must be regularly updated and amended. Similarly, franchisors are required to maintain their business registration with the state and file documents on time to keep the entire franchise in good standing.

The deadlines for contract updates, registration submissions, and filing requirements must be met, or the franchise can face legal consequences. A California franchise attorney can help you meet all these deadlines and keep your business running.

Transactional Services

Transactional services include major changes to your franchise system, including mergers, acquisitions, and the purchase or sale of intellectual property. These types of transactions can affect your business for years to come, so it’s essential to have your attorney review them carefully.

Your attorney will write and review contracts and agreements for transactional services that help you maintain your business rights. These contracts are tricky, and it’s easy to accidentally cede a right that you wanted if you’re not careful. Our lawyers’ expertise will help you keep and acquire the rights you want and prevent accidental concessions.
