Franchise Your Business

Franchisors must comply with federal disclosure rules as well as registration requirements in each state in which they desire to sell their franchises.

At Schnelker, Rassi, & McConnell, our franchise attorneys are experienced in all aspects of franchising, from initial issues related to federal compliance and state registration and disclosure to ongoing issues such as contract drafting and review, litigation, and real estate leasing and acquisition. Here are just a few ways we can help:

  • Creation and maintenance of franchise distribution license agreements
  • Drafting and review of franchise disclosures and related contracts, including area developer agreements and franchisor agreements
