Franchises seem to guarantee business success for clients.
They take a proven national or regional business concept and brand, plant it in local soil, and watch it grow.
The challenge for attorneys is to counsel clients about risk – the failure of a substantial number of franchises – and about the substantial costs and restrictions that go into buying and operating a franchise.
There are issues of federal and state regulation, and vastly complex disclosure documents and franchise agreements.
Working through the mass of information and properly judging risk/reward can be a daunting task.
This program provides you with a real world guide to the framework of franchise law, practical due diligence of franchise opportunities, and reviewing and negotiating the most important provisions of franchise agreements.
