Litigation without insurance can be a bankrupting experience. We can make sure that you are adequately protected and that your insurance carrier fulfills its obligations under its insurance contract with you.
Why Franchise Law?

For the Franchisor, franchising presents the opportunity to leverage a great business concept for widespread implementation using the money and manpower of individual investors who devote their energies with the long-term benefits of increased goodwill, market recognition and value accruing to the Franchisor.

For the Franchisee, franchising is an opportunity to have access to a tried and true business concept with a small investment into a joint effort with the Franchisor to achieve a profit.

Franchising can be a win-win opportunity with plenty of money to be made for both Franchiser and Franchisee. However, the waters are filled with sharks and many a Franchisor is not reputable, does not have a tried and true concept or will never fulfill the many promises made to secure a Franchisee. Great care must be taken if life saving are not going to be lost.

What Can The Soni Law Firm do for your Franchise Program?

Our attorneys can design franchise programs; draft franchise agreements, distribution agreements and area development agreements; and help potential franchisees determine their rights under complex agreements. They prepare Uniform Franchise Offering Circulars (UFOCs) to comply with applicable regulations and record the offerings with the appropriate authorities. We can also handle all pertinent registration and disclosure documentation. We can also guide businesses in finding other alternatives to franchising, as well as considering various exemptions and exclusions available under federal and state franchise laws.

The Group handles trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights issues, advertising concerns, franchise law compliance, special tax issues, mergers and acquisitions, antitrust matters and other corporate issues related to franchises for Franchisors and Franchisees.

We can perform due diligence for businesses considering becoming franchisees, including review of legal documents and investigation of numerous legal and business aspects of the Franchisor, such as corporate status, registration status in various states, ownership of intellectual property and circumstances surrounding termination of other franchisees. We also can negotiate franchise, dealership and distribution agreements and advise clients in regard to dealer termination cases. If necessary, we can bring our considerable litigation experience to bear in resolving franchise disputes.
