The effective operation of your franchise, invariably involves the appropriate legal oversight and protections.

Operating a successful franchise location is rarely, if ever, without legal peril. Whether it is day-to-day issues or long-term issues that have been building over time, the importance of addressing those issues immediately and effectively cannot be understated. There is far too much at stake for any franchisee to simply take a “wait and see” approach, especially when the implications of such inaction can be calamitous for the business. Instead, franchisees are far better served by directing their attention to the issue and how it may be resolved, and where appropriate call upon professional advisers to assist in the resolution of the particular dilemma.

As legal counsel to franchisees, we are called upon by their owners to review and advise upon operational issues that may threaten or are already adversely impacting the franchise. Our role in the resolution of such business issues can range from acting as a professional sounding board to devising and implementing a legal strategy through which a viable resolution may be achieved. Given the fluidity of such situations, the suggested approach may well evolve over time as the situation changes, with prevention and damage control being an ongoing objective goal.
