Franchise

The key to Phillips Lytle’s success in handling franchise matters is our ability to view each matter not only from a legal perspective, but also through a business lens. Franchising has unique aspects, but it is also a portal for doing business and generating profits. Those in franchising encounter the same business challenges as other companies. Our attorneys possess experience counseling, assisting and working closely with franchisors in connection with:

  • Franchising existing businesses
  • Selling franchises
  • Managing relationships with franchisees

We assist with regulatory compliance and litigation nationwide. We work closely with the firm’s attorneys from various practice groups to address the wide range of issues our clients face. Our attorneys have experience handling litigation, labor and employment, real estate, contracts, antitrust, securities, intellectual property and tax matters. In addition, Phillips Lytle has a cross-border practice that assists Canadian clients with U.S. franchise operations.
