Legal Representation For Franchisees
If you are a franchisee or considering the purchase of a franchise in Illinois, make sure you understand your obligations, rights and responsibilities. Many franchisees have no previous experience with franchising and need the legal direction of experienced franchise and business lawyers. The attorneys in the Huck Bouma Franchise Law Practice Group have over 30 years of experience in helping franchisees protect their interests.
Do not invest in a franchise without the counsel of an experienced franchise attorney. In the case of franchise law, extensive experience is important. The Huck Bouma franchise attorneys can help franchisees with any of the following:
- Review of Franchise Disclosure Documents
- Review and negotiation of franchise agreements, including restrictive terms, non-compete clauses and territory terms
- Lease review and negotiation
- Review of ancillary agreements
- Entity formation
If you are an existing franchisee, you will want to seek counsel and advice from our franchise lawyers relating to:
- Transfer and sale of your business
- Franchise and lease renewals
- Franchise defaults or termination
- Franchise relationship
- Closing a franchise business
Owning a franchise is a significant investment of your resources and should be done with the support of experienced franchise attorneys. When you work with the Huck Bouma Franchise Law Practice Group, knowledgeable attorneys scrutinize any restrictive economic terms, non-compete clauses, territory protections and potential consequences of your termination. This legal counsel and direction you need is provided prior to purchase so that you fully understand your rights and responsibilities.
