  • The strategic planning and information required to draft a Franchise Agreement for the Franchisor’s business model.
  • The “must” legal provisions in a Franchise Agreement and how these provisions address everyday franchising issues.
  • Analyzing the empirical business and economic data relating to the Franchisor’s business model and addressing the unique aspects of the Franchisor’s business in the Franchise Agreement.
  • Structuring a “fair” Franchise Agreement that addresses the needs of the Franchisor but does not hamper the Franchisee’s ability to build value.
  • Avoiding malpractice claims by carefully planning and developing the terms and conditions of the Franchise Agreement with the Franchisor and anticipating the business issues a growing and expanding Franchisor will face.
