what we do / Franchising

keep franchises healthy
with careful nurture

Tucker Ellis represents franchisors and franchisees in local and national franchising and licensing matters. We routinely counsel franchisors and franchisees with respect to creation or review of Uniform Franchise Offering Circulars and related disclosure documents, drafting and negotiation of franchise agreements and lease agreements, and assist them in obtaining and structuring necessary financing arrangements and in drafting and negotiating financing documentation. Our franchising attorneys have experience in drafting necessary documentation for master franchises, area development, unit franchises and sub-franchises, and assist franchisors and franchisees with initial and ongoing compliance matters, including filing, amendment and renewal of state registrations, transfers of unit or area franchises and termination of franchise agreements, as well as with structuring in-house compliance programs.
