Franchise Transactional Services

ZESB’s franchise lawyers guide franchisee clients through all stages of franchising — from initial exploration of a franchise opportunity, through franchise ownership, to termination of the franchise relationship.

We thoroughly review proposed franchise or dealership documents with our franchisee clients to ensure that they understand all of 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. And we routinely recommend changes to the proposed agreements and negotiate those changes with the franchisor or manufacturer.

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 non-compete agreements, and personal guarantees.
