ACCOMPLISHING YOUR OBJECTIVES THROUGH DRAFTING, NEGOTIATION OR LITIGATION
Deciding to become a franchisee is a big step. The process can feel overwhelming, and a small mistake can have significant financial repercussions. At Luther Lanard, we will guide you through each step of the process. Our experienced team can evaluate your franchise legal documents, negotiate multiunit agreements, set up your legal entity as a corporation or LLC and help you negotiate a strong commercial lease. When you’re ready to sell or buy additional franchises, we can assist with that too. With over 50 years of combined legal expertise in franchise law, we are confident that we can put you on the right path to business success.
If you’re a franchisee in a dispute with the franchisor or your landlord we can help. We will negotiate, litigate and, if necessary, take a matter to trial to achieve your objectives. With prior experience as a in-house counsel for a franchisor, we understand how franchisors approach these issues, which gives us an advantage in advocating on your behalf. Problems get resolved faster when all parties speak the same language and understand each other’s point of view. And if the other side is unreasonable, we will be ready to take the matter to trial.
We have represented franchisees worldwide from single unit owners to corporations owning hundreds of units and everyone in between. Let us take care of your legal issues so you can focus on running your business.
