Franchise and Distribution Law

Our lawyers are consistently recognized in the area of franchise and distribution law.

We help clients achieve their growth objectives through franchising, licensing, and distribution arrangements, domestically and internationally. We’ve helped structure and launch dozens of new franchise programs, and have helped to refine and modify established programs as their systems evolved. Through our memberships and participation, we stay connected to the franchise industry and are able to offer clients the benefit of our relationships.

We provide franchise compliance and regulatory services, domestic and international intellectual property protection services, and day-to-day legal counsel. We also represent franchise clients in negotiations, workouts and disputes.

Internationally, we represent franchisors and franchisees with cross border transactions, arrange for international trademark protection, and manage international trademark and domain name portfolios for clients with a global presence. We also assist foreign nationals with investor visas.
