Franchise Lawyer

The franchise attorneys at Fahey Schultz Burzych Rhodes PLC help you grow your business. Through franchising, our attorneys develop growth strategies to meet your specific business needs, regardless of the industry in which you operate.

Franchising is often an effective model of distribution for goods and services sold under your brand. However, franchise sales are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and various other statutes.

Our franchise attorneys help draft state and FTC compliant Franchise Disclosure Documents, franchise agreements, master franchise agreements, area development agreements, and all other ancillary documents necessary to protect your brand.

Whether you are exploring franchising for the first time or a well-developed franchise system, our franchise attorneys can assist you in document drafting, complying with state franchise sale statutes, managing franchisee relationships, enforcing the franchise system, and overseeing various franchise transactions.
