Franchising and Alternatives
We can help you determine if you are ready to franchise your business, and can provide advice regarding potential alternatives. We can help you understand the difference between franchising and non-franchise licensing, for example.
If you are ready to franchise, then we will apply our knowledge of franchise law to create tailored franchise documents that meet the needs of your business. We have worked with franchisors from a wide range of business industries.
State Franchise Registrations and Exemptions
While the State of Arizona does not require franchise registration in order to offer franchises in Arizona, many states in the U.S. do require registration or exemption. You will likely plan to expand to other states via franchising, and our Scottsdale franchise lawyer can help you obtain required state franchise registrations in states that so require. This may include, for example, states like California, Florida, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and several other states that require franchise registration or exemption in order to offer and sell franchises.
International Franchising and Licensing
We can help you offer franchises outside of the United States, including various provinces in neighboring Canada and other jurisdictions. We may work closely with local legal counsel in foreign jurisdictions as needed.
