Franchising Law and Franchise Disputes

Serving Clients Throughout Georgia, Nationwide and Abroad

Franchising can be extremely profitable for both the franchisor and franchisee. The franchisor gains the opportunity to expand an existing brand with less risk, while the franchisee gets in at the ground floor of a proven enterprise, often with built-in operational training and sales support.

In today's economy, successful brands across the nation and worldwide are offering or considering franchising opportunities, and entrepreneurs around the globe are eager to accept. How do you determine the best match — and ensure your interests are protected? What happens if a dispute arises? Contact Kaufman & Forman, P.C., for a consultation.

For more than 30 years, we have been advising entrepreneurs and businesses in greater Atlanta and the region. Along with attorneys licensed in multiple states and federal courts, we have strategic partnerships in place with law firms in China and the European Union, so we have the resources to represent local, national and international franchisors and franchisees in all phases of a successful franchise relationship.

Successful Franchising Relationships Require Both Up-Front Research and Ongoing Support

A franchising relationship relies in part on compatibility and trust — augmented by a clear, well-drafted franchising agreement. One of our experienced business lawyers can negotiate, draft or review your franchise agreement to make sure the franchisor and franchisee obligations are clear and there are no surprises.

Throughout the franchise relationship, we can ensure that franchise policies are enforced properly; that operations run smoothly; and that the franchised is renewed, transferred or wound down appropriately. Should a dispute arise, we are well-positioned to resolve the matter through negotiation or litigation. We also handle dealership and distribution agreements.
