Mitchell B. Gerson, Esq.

Franchising & Distribution

Experienced Franchise and Distribution Lawyer

The business, legal, and financial issues involved in franchising must be carefully analyzed to determine the best way to proceed for you and your business. At the Law Office of Mitchell B. Gerson, Esquire, clients are reminded of three key, but often overlooked, points in franchising. First, they are advised that many of the skills and responsibilities which enable one to create a successful small business are different from those needed by a successful franchisor.  Second, the skills and attitude of a good employee are not necessarily those of a successful franchisee. Third, a franchise is a new business, subject to the risks and costs of any new venture. It is important to have a knowledgeable and dedicated franchise and business lawyer to guide you in making sound decisions.

The firm helps both franchisors and franchisees deal with the various legal and business concerns that affect the franchise relationship. Franchise contract drafting and review, counseling, compliance with the Federal Trade Commission requirements regarding disclosure, handling trademark and copyright issues, and managing the state-specific laws regarding franchising and registration are all services offered at the Law Office of Mitchell B. Gerson, Esquire. Attorney Mitchell Gerson helps clients with all franchise issues, including business planning, contracts, and investigating opportunities. He assists the mature franchise with such concerns as expansion, franchise termination and alternate distribution.

As with any new business, a franchise might not be profitable for a period of time. By helping business owners understand the business and legal challenges of franchising, and by explaining in practical terms what those challenges mean to the business, Mitchell B. Gerson, Esq., enables his clients to make intelligent decisions about whether to enter the field of franchising.

If a client decides to proceed, the firm will work to help make the franchise arrangement a success. The services of an experienced franchise attorney are essential. Contact a knowledgeable franchise lawyer today to schedule a consultation.
