CaliforniaFranchising and Distribution Law Lawyers in California

When a business is successful, demand for the product or service often justifies opening the business in other locations throughout the state or country.


Business owners can capitalize on that demand and grow quickly by franchising the business.


Franchising is defined as allowing business licensing so others to sell or market the product or service in another location.


Attorneys for franchising or distribution law in California can help negotiate a well-written agreement with franchisees to protect both the business and its brand.


A franchising and distribution lawyer may also advise on strategy and financial issues related to the franchisor and franchisee relationship.
