By on August 11, 2021
Choosing a franchise law firm with seasoned and experienced attorneys is essential towards establishing and expanding your franchise. Afterall, franchising is no simple venture. At Mulcahy LLP, we devote our time and effort towards representing clients in numerous franchising matters, including but not limited to franchisors, franchisees, dealers, distributors, sub franchisors, and franchisee associations. With over 50+ years of combined experience in representing clients in their legal matters, our firm is highly experienced in guiding you through issues you may encounter within the realm of franchise law
Consider the following criteria when evaluation and selecting a franchise law firm.
Expertise in Franchising and Business Law
When conducting comparison between law firms, one should examine the expertise of the attorneys at the firm. While many law firms claim they specialize in a variety of different legal practice areas, it is important to find a firm that truly dedicates itself to solving clients’ legal troubles with franchise law.
Attorneys with key credentials, such as awards, speaking engagements, and franchise law publications are indications that they will be able to utilize their experience and skills to guide you through the complex process of franchising your business and operating it successfully. Franchise and distribution law firms with specialized attorneys will best serve the needs of franchisors and franchisees.
Representation Experience and Business Growth Focus
If you are a franchisor, hire an attorney that focuses on working with franchisors. If the attorney mostly works with franchisees, it may not have routine experience drafting franchise disclosure documents. You need an attorney that is pro-franchisor with his or her legal advice and is experienced representing startup and new franchisors. On the other hand, a franchisee will want an attorney with considerable experience representing franchisees.
Boutique law firms commit to helping individuals and businesses directly. Working with specialized firms will allow you to work closely with attorneys that will be with you through the entire legal process. You can expect more client-focused service done by attorneys themselves and not associates. Whenever you have any franchise questions or concerns, a franchise law firm can give you the answer and guidance you need.
