Alissa Carter Verson – 5 Years in Franchise Law

by | Jun 22, 2021 | Business Law, Firm News, Franchise Law

In May, I celebrated 5 years as an Associate Attorney with Huck Bouma (formerly Carter & Tani) and 5 years as a franchise attorney.  While the learning curve was steep, in these past 5 years I have developed a passion for franchise law and providing services and advice to our franchise clients.

Through the training and leadership of partners Doris Carter and Christine Tani, I now am able to confidently provide the following services to our franchisor clients:

  • Prepare FDDs and Franchise Agreement for compliance with the FTC Rule and various state franchise laws
  • Prepare initial and renewal applications for franchisors’ state registrations and make necessary FDD and Franchise Agreement updates
  • Conduct Franchise Law Compliance Training
  • Review Franchisors’ Operations Manuals for Franchise Law Compliance
  • Advise Franchisors on franchisee relationship issues, including renewals, terminations, defaults and transfers

For clients looking to purchase a franchise, I provide a fixed fee review of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and Franchise Agreement. This service includes the review of the documents, a written memo describing my findings and general advice regarding the purchase of a franchise, and a meeting  with the client to discuss the review.

I also assist franchisees with exit strategies or other options when they are not satisfied with the franchise business they are operating..

Additionally, I provide the following services to our franchise and other business clients:

  • Commercial Lease Review
  • Contract Drafting and Negotiation
  • Purchase and Sale of Businesses
  • Trademark/Service Mark Registration and Counseling

I look forward to providing these services to and maintaining relationships with our clients for years to come.
