JLG’s franchise attorneys represent franchisors and offer them a wide array of services. We have helped new and prominent franchisors, particularly within the hospitality industry, to develop, license, and protect their franchises. Within this practice our franchise attorneys counsel franchisors on how to comply with state and federal franchising laws and how to sublicense their brands. Our attorneys also assist franchisors to draft contracts, disclosure documents, and protect their IP rights from fraud and misuse.


Although we primarily represent franchisors, we can assist franchisees and potential franchisees review FDDs and franchise agreements and help them negotiate these documents. 


Our areas of service include:

  • Drafting Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs)

  • Compliance with State and Federal Law

  • Investigations by state regulatory agencies

  • Resolving violations of franchise law

  • Intellectual Property disputes

  • Litigation and disputes

  • Drafting and negotiating supplier agreements
