Experienced California Business Attorneys Advise on Franchising Matters

Skilled lawyers assist clients in the Encino area with purchase, sale and management decisions

A franchise’s success depends on legally sound and thorough agreements that clearly spell out the obligations and rights of both sellers and buyers. An experienced business lawyer can ensure those agreements meet your needs and goals while conforming to federal, state and local laws governing franchises. At Law Offices of Pedram Amini, we represent franchisees and franchisors in the Encino area and throughout California in transactions and other relevant legal matters. We assess the risks and advantages of franchising, as well as the commitment required, so you have sufficient information to support your decisions.

Knowledgeable counselors advise on all aspects of franchise law

A franchise gives independent business owners the legal right to sell another company’s products and use their identifying features, such as business secrets, copyrights and trademarks, in exchange for a fee. These items allow franchisees to establish and conduct business with the advantage of an already established business model, marketing strategy and brand recognition. While franchisors control some aspects of the enterprise and may receive a percentage of its income, it is the independent owner who sees profits or losses from the local business.

Proven advocates represent your rights in franchise agreements

Whether you’re a franchisor or franchisee, it’s essential you’re represented by an astute business attorney who understands the federal, state and common laws that govern franchises in your area.
