Offering Legal Guidance During Franchise Transactions
The documentation surrounding franchising can be complex, but it is essential for creating strong working relationships between franchisor and franchisee. The assistance of an experienced franchise attorney could be essential in navigating these transactions.
Our franchise lawyers at Zarco Einhorn Salkowski & Brito, P.A., guide franchisee clients through all stages of franchising, from initial exploration of a franchise opportunity, through franchise ownership, to termination of the franchise relationship. Our Miami firm’s vast knowledge and exceptional experience in this legal area allow us to afford our clients practical advice and realistic solutions for every challenge they may face in their business.
Services For Every Stage Of The Franchise Process
We thoroughly review the proposed franchise or dealership documents with our franchisee clients to ensure that they understand all the terms and are prepared to pursue all opportunities to negotiate favorable terms. We help our clients assess the franchise and advise them on the pros and cons of becoming a franchisee. We also routinely recommend changes to the proposed agreements and negotiate those changes with the franchisor or manufacturer. The franchise transactions we assist our clients with include but are not limited to:
- Becoming a franchisee and evaluating a franchise opportunity
- Structuring a new franchise, including partnership, shareholder and operating agreements
- Reviewing indemnity agreements, construction loan agreements, lease and various ancillary agreements
- Renewals of existing franchise agreements
- Franchise sales and transfers
In addition to our expertise with franchise agreements, our attorneys are well-versed in drafting, reviewing and negotiating other types of business contracts that franchisees might encounter, including leases, purchase and sale agreements, employment, confidentiality and noncompete agreements, and personal guarantees.

“Mr. Zarco’s direct examinations and cross examinations of witnesses were incisive and to the point… What we could not anticipate was the passion and dedication with which they (the Zarco team) undertook the case, as if it was their very own livelihood that was on the line… The Zarco team took this on a contingency basis, got the case reinstated, and put time and effort into it as if we were high-paying clients. They put their lives on hold for more than a month in California, away from their friends and families. It was more than we could ever have hoped for.”
