Get the Legal Support You Need for Franchising

Since emerging as a field of law two decades ago, franchising has become one of the most popular ways for business owners to leverage the power of their brand. It’s also an excellent way to start a business, reducing the risk, experience required, and the initial capital investment. In a standard arrangement, the owner (Franchisor) of a brand or product provides licensing and usage rights to dealers (Franchisees) for a cost. Franchisees normally receive sole permission to run the franchise over a set geographic location and receive support for marketing, branding, and operations from the Franchisor.

If you’re looking to start your own business or turbocharge your existing business and brand, franchising is an excellent option.
