Owning an International Franchise — Lawyer With Experience

As the owner of a franchise, do you feel trapped? Has your franchisor failed to honor its contract? Is the advertising support short of what you expected? Has the corporation allowed another franchisee to infringe on your territory? These are all difficult issues that call for knowledgeable care and handling by a seasoned international franchise attorney.

For more than 33 years, I have been providing skilled legal counsel regarding international franchise matters. I have an extensive background representing franchisees exclusively in domestic franchise law and international franchise law. My knowledge and skill is nationally recognized and, as a result, the Wall Street Journal as well as local news and radio programs have interviewed me regarding franchise issues.

Issues With Owning an International Franchise

If you have owned a franchise, you are aware that franchise agreements are terminated for numerous reasons, including a master developer not making quota. If, however, the franchisor has disobeyed the law or breached the original franchise agreement, you may have a cause of action. If the corporation has misrepresented its claims to you, you may have been defrauded.

Before you litigate, know your lawyer. Let my competent legal counsel and extensive international franchise experience help you protect your rights and provide a safe landing.

I provide informative counsel to prospective franchisees of an existing system. I will advise you of the risks involved in owning an international franchise and protect your rights and business interests should a dispute arise. In addition, if you once owned a franchise but your franchise agreement concluded in your wrongful termination, I can help you pursue accountability.
