Disclosure documents and compliance strategies as unique as your brand.

Every franchise brand must comply with a complex web of federal and state laws to offer franchises. In most cases, compliance with these laws starts with the preparation and registration of a franchise disclosure document. But the laws vary state to state, and of course, there are always exceptions to every rule. We work with our clients to ensure they stay compliant, while at the same time tailoring documents and compliance strategies to each franchise brand’s unique goals for growth.

Here are some of the services we offer:

  • Creating franchise agreements and disclosure documents – whether preparing a start-up system’s first documents or tailoring documents for a mature system.
  • Managing ongoing compliance efforts, including registering with state agencies, seeking appropriate exemptions, managing expirations and renewals, and addressing any violations.
  • Structuring alternative methods of distribution and licensing for companies that want to avoid becoming a franchisor.
  • Helping negotiate, manage and document relationships with franchisees, licensees, vendors, suppliers and competitors of all sizes and complexities.
