Want to franchise your business?

If you have a business that has proven successful and you are now ready to share the success with others, and grow your business, franchising may be a viable and worthwhile option.

The lawyers at the Franchise & Business Law Group at WTP in Baltimore, Maryland, work with potential franchisors to evaluate the benefits and risks associated with such a growth strategy. If becoming a franchisor is the path to take, the firm will prepare the Franchise Disclosure Document that you will be legally obligated to provide to prospective franchisees, as well as the standard form of franchise agreement and other contracts and materials to present to potential buyers. In addition, the firm assists with your registration of the Franchise Offering with state securities commissioners.

You will want to consider what types of Trademark and Copyright protection you might need. This is an area of importance as you start your new franchise system to ensure protection of your business name, logos, and business system. The type of Business Entity (Corporation, LLC, Partnership) you choose is also an important consideration with which Franchise & Business Law Group has significant experience.

Additionally, Franchise & Business Law Group coordinates with a franchising consultant to assist in the development of your company’s store operations manual, promotional materials to attract franchisees, and a business plan, which may be needed to secure financing.
