Franchise Lawyer for Franchisees
Mr. Katz is much more than your franchise attorney
As a franchise attorney, Mr. Katz takes a proactive role with his franchisee clients by imparting both legal advice and practical business counsel. Franchisee clients also benefit from the firm’s business, transactional, and real estate practices as franchise opportunities most often touch on these areas of the law.
Franchise Attorney Consultation
Mr. Katz focuses on understanding his client’s personality, business background, skills, management style, and goals. This is an integral part of advising the client on the purchase decision. It is important that the buyer and the opportunity be a good fit. With this in mind, he explains what to expect when buying a franchise and the issues that may arise. He shares his general industry knowledge as a franchise lawyer and reviews any potential concerns related to the business sector of the specific franchise.
Franchise Lawyer Document Review
After reviewing the FDD, Mr. Katz prepares a detailed memo explaining the document. He presents usual industry practices and what may be unique to this franchise. He offers his opinion on what he considers to be non-negotiable terms and advises on issues that might be negotiable. He offers background and “behind-the-scenes” information so that the buyer is clear about expectations.
