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.

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.
