Leasing has become synonymous with franchising and therefore demands your attention.

Leasing represents a significant aspect of most franchise operations, whether it takes the form of leasing the real estate within which the franchise business operates and/or it is the leasing of the equipment that enables the franchise to engage in its operations. As such, franchisees are dealing with critical components to their business, which can have a significant financial burden on their bottom line if the leasing arrangements are slanted or unfair.

Given the importance of your lease arrangements to your franchise's success, donít underestimate the significance of your lawyer in:

-          advising and coordinating your lease negotiations

-          protecting you from negotiating away important rights + safeguards

-          obtaining key concessions and benefits from the other side

-          identifying traps and pitfalls in the other sideís requests

-          drafting the terms of your lease agreement (and offer to lease)

-          reviewing and explaining the contents of a proposed lease

-          obtaining changes to the lease that protect your interests

-          securing the other sideís compliance with their lease obligations

-          resolving disputes and enforcing legal responsibilities
