Global Franchise and Distribution

Our Global Franchising and Distribution Team is adept at developing strategies and documentation for increasing market share and driving additional revenue, at the lowest cost and least risk to clients. Our clients are U.S. businesses with growing markets overseas, and companies outside the U.S. looking to grow U.S. sales against a background of regulatory complexity and unusual litigation risk. We work with our clients to determine the most effective expansion strategies within their domestic markets and internationally, advising on:

  • Franchising
  • Distribution
  • Licensing
  • Agency
  • Multi-channel & hybrid

Our team counsels companies in rolling out new franchise programs in the U.S. and abroad, including drafting franchise agreements and disclosure documents, handling state and federal franchise registrations, and day to day counseling on termination, renewal, compliance, encroachment and similar day to day franchise issues.

Outside the franchise arena, the team has deep experience with distribution and licensing programs of all types and aimed at all major jurisdictions throughout the world. We are not cloistered academics, and pride ourselves on creative solutions that balance legal and compliance risk, on the one hand, with the client’s ability to operate its business effectively, on the other.
