Firm Overview

Midwest Franchise and Business Law Firm For 25 Years

We are attorneys offering high quality, efficient legal services. We seek to assist franchisors, subfranchisors, master franchisees, area developers, franchisees and independent business owners in establishing and developing their businesses.

At Carter & Tani, we assist our franchise clients in all aspects of franchise law, including drafting franchise agreements and Franchise Disclosure Documents in compliance with the Amended FTC Rule, and in obtaining state franchise registrations. We confidently handle all transactions and other legal matters related to franchises, such as the offer and sale of franchises, transfers, renewals, and terminations.

We offer business services to our business and franchise clients, such as entity formation, commercial lease review and negotiation, contract preparation and negotiation, trademark protection, and assistance in the purchase or sale of businesses.

We have the experience, tools, and resources to protect the business interest of and to minimize future liability for our franchise and business clients. Our lawyers will help you lay the legal foundation for a successful franchise or business.

Our franchise and business attorneys are meticulous in preparation of our client's disclosure documents and preparation and review of contracts. They take the time to explain the possible advantages or risks of drafting decisions. If you are entering into a business transaction, you want to make sure that you understand your rights and obligations before you sign any contract. Our attorneys can provide you with the legal guidance you need to make informed business decisions.

Our personalized services go beyond those offered by larger firms. We are attentive to the needs of our clients and communicate with them regularly.

We are transactional attorneys dedicated to providing the highest quality legal service to each client. It is our goal to be in communication with you and to remain accessible to you throughout our attorney-client relationship. Since we are not litigators, we are not in and out of the office making appearances in court or attending depositions. We are available to speak to you.
