Our Chicago area franchise lawyers can assist you with any of the following:

  • Franchise transfers

The franchise state laws governing franchise relationships are complex and varied. We can assist you in taking proper action to comply with the law before changing the status of a franchise relationship.

Under certain state laws, you cannot terminate or refuse to renew the relationship without notice. We assist franchisors in issuing notices so that you have defaults and other non-compliance issues properly documented. If you are a franchisor and have a franchisee that is in default, we can assist you in collecting royalties, collecting reports and deal with other non-compliance issues.
