State and federal franchise and distribution laws apply to a wide variety of industries. Franchising is a highly-regulated and complicated area of law, which requires specialized assistance. Jones Waldo’s franchise attorneys do everything from drafting franchise agreements and Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs) to ensuring compliance with state-specific requirements.
In addition, we regularly litigate and arbitrate a variety of franchise claims across the United States and abroad. We are well equipped to handle legal disputes involving post-termination franchisee obligations, including covenants not-to-compete, non-solicitation provisions, use of confidential information, trademark and copyright infringement, and other de-identification issues.
