Helping You Buy into Proven Models of Success

The Wilson Law Group has an extensive history in representing both franchisors and franchisees, which enables us to anticipate potential issues and offer more comprehensive solutions that bring both short- and long-term benefits.

Franchises tend to offer a more structured, lower-risk opportunity to entrepreneurs, allowing them to buy into a proven model of success—often with the added benefit of having numerous resources provided by the overarching company. If you already own a franchise or are interested in the possibility of owning one, here’s how we can help:

Buying a Franchise

If you are an aspiring franchisee, we can help you with the following:

  • Negotiations with franchisors
  • Advice on due diligence
  • Reviewing Franchise Disclosure Documents and agreements
  • Reviewing purchase agreements and leases
  • Acquisition of master franchise opportunities
  • Creating and structuring the franchisee entity

Franchise Disclosure Document

The Franchise Disclosure Agreement is a key document that details information about the franchisor and the organization the franchisor represents. The FDD provides the potential franchisee with the information needed to make a sound investment.

Selling a Franchise

We assist with franchise sales by preparing closing documents such as:

  • Franchise Agreement
  • Franchise Disclosure Document
  • Assignment of Lease
  • Security Agreement
  • Personal guarantee of purchases (if applicable)
  • Registration of FDD in applicable states

The Wilson Law Group is highly focused on assisting franchisors with positive management advice, preventing or limiting disputes and litigation, and strengthening the business’s bottom line. Years of experience in franchise law has given us a thorough understanding of both sides of key issues as well as an ability to help franchisees and franchisors across a broad range of industries.
