Are you thinking of franchising? You have come to the right place. We help successful businesses expand through franchising. We also represent prospective franchise buyers and franchisees. Our founder has authored publications on governmental regulation of franchises and business aspects of franchising.   Are you starting a new business, buying or selling a business, or in need of business-related contracts? We can help with that. We provide a broad range of legal services for businesses, from business formations to business exits and from ownership agreements to customer agreements (and a variety of other contracts).   Do you want to protect your brand? Do you need help selecting a business name or product name that can be legally protected? We will teach you the key legal principles that will help you choose strong brand names and logos. We will then apply to register your trademarks at the state or national level.
