We are franchise lawyers.
Our franchise lawyers offer a personal touch to franchising. We give our clients our cell phone numbers. We offer capped rate legal services. Decades of experience give us the legal insight that gets our clients results without the guess-work. We represent franchisors in a variety of industries including restaurant, business brokerage, fast food, retail, health and wellness, services, and more. We use the knowledge and perspective gained from representing franchisors in our counseling of franchisees looking to buy a single franchise unit or multiple units. For a capped fee, we provide a review of the FDD and franchise agreement and prepare a memorandum of negotiating points as well as an addendum to the franchise agreement. We offer our franchisee clients a capped fee lease review to ensure that the lease terms are fair and understood. In addition to these transactional services, we represent both franchisors and franchisees in litigation disputes in federal court, state court, arbitration and mediation.
Here are just some of the franchise law services we offer our clients:
- Drafting Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD) and Franchise Agreements
- Startup franchising to convert your business into a franchise system
- Serving as fractional general counsel to Florida and nationwide franchisors
- Counseling franchisees in purchasing franchise units
- Trademark Registrations
- Compliance and regulatory issues
- Pre-litigation legal counseling
- Franchise litigation, arbitration and mediation
Our clients will tell you that we are very responsive and never charge for phone calls or emails to discuss your matter. We aren’t interested in “nickel and diming” our clients, and we would rather our clients consider us their partner in an industry riddled with individuals and companies that are not always looking out for others’ best interests. We tell our clients that, in franchising, you cannot be “penny-wise, pound foolish.” There is a lot of money at stake, and due diligence is absolutely necessary. We can provide you the peace of mind in your franchising endeavors.
Wasch Raines Franchise Attorneys Power Franchise Formations LLC
Our franchise lawyers have teamed up with experienced franchise consultants and franchise brokers to form a soup-to-nuts franchise conversion startup called Franchise Formations LLC. We franchise businesses. It’s what we do, and it’s our passion. We take mom-and-pops that are ready financially and structurally to expand their business, and we analyze the business from top-to-bottom. We establish the franchise system infrastructure by preparing the necessary legal documents and registration filings to allow these successful businesses to sell franchises across the country. After our clients are franchised, our partners will provide you the tools to sell your brand to prospective franchisees. Wasch Raines’ franchise lawyers offer general counsel services to our clients once the franchise system is established. We are hands on and offer a personal touch to our startup franchising business clients.
