Outside General Counsel Services
Acting as General Counsel to Franchisors
Our legal services include acting as outside general counsel to small and
medium-sized franchisors. This arrangement gives franchisors nationwide
the ability to have an ongoing attorney-client relationship with a franchise
lawyer who really understands the franchise system - without the cost
involved in hiring an attorney to work in-house as an employee. Our managing
partner previously served as in-house counsel for multiple franchise companies
for over 20 years, he has been an owner in many franchise companies, and
he knows what franchise companies need to do to protect assets, maximize
profits, and otherwise run in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
If in-house counsel is unaffordable, or otherwise doesn't make sense
for you, we can help. If your current arrangement with outside counsel
is cost-prohibitive, or is otherwise not working, we can help. We will
not tell you all the reasons you can't do something. Instead, we will
get to know you, your business, the factors influencing your decision-making,
and we will focus on finding solutions for your everyday legal needs.
This includes all aspects of managing your legal needs, such as:
