The Business Franchise Agreements Attorney You Need On Your Side

Last updated on June 3, 2024

A franchise can fulfill a long-standing dream of business ownership – but only when your franchise agreement sets the proper foundation for success. A good franchise agreement clearly defines the obligations and rights of both parties, laying the framework for a long, productive business relationship.

At Valenti Hanley PLLC, we combine large-firm experience with the attention to detail and commitment to our clients that you would expect from a small firm. Operating from our Louisville office, our lawyers understand both Kentucky and Colorado business law, and we know what it takes to make sure that your franchise investment is protected.

How Can We Help With Your Franchise Agreement?

At Valenti Hanley PLLC, we are a full-service firm that can be by your side for a lifetime, helping negotiate your agreements at the very beginning of your franchise agreements until the day you decide to retire or sell. Our lawyers can:

  • Review the Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD) to highlight key issues and clarify ambiguous terms
  • Analyze the franchise agreement to identify unfavorable clauses and suggest modifications
  • Negotiate better terms for fees, royalties, advertising contributions, territory rights and exclusivity clauses
  • Negotiate modifications to the terms of your franchisor support and training, as well as renewal, transfer and termination provisions
  • Draft and review ancillary agreements, such as those involving leases and suppliers, and clarify the use of trademarks, branding and logos
  • Advise on dispute resolution clauses and help negotiate a favorable choice of law and jurisdiction provisions

If disputes with your franchisor do arise, our attorneys can provide ongoing legal support that helps you safeguard against unfair treatment or misconduct. We can also assist with exit strategies when the time comes.
