Nancy Lanard, Franchise Attorney – Lanard and Associates.

Nancy Lanard, Franchise Attorney - Lanard and Associates
As you progress with a franchise investigation, an important question you should ask yourself is if you need an attorney to review the documents. The answer is absolutely, yes! This is a legal contract that you are entering into which can impact your business for years and cost you a great deal of money and time to fulfill. It is important that you have an experienced franchisee attorney, such as the attorneys at Lanard and Associates, review the documents to be on your team to protect your legal rights and explain the documents to you. The attorneys at Lanard and Associates have over 20 years of experience evaluating franchise documents nationwide for their clients. Franchise law is a highly regulated, complex and specialized area of law that involves federal and state regulations. It is important to have experienced franchisee counsel review the FDD and franchise agreement even if the franchisor indicates that the agreement is not negotiable. Many times these “non-negotiable” documents are negotiable and can be amended to clarify terms or add provisions. The attorneys at Lanard and Associates represent clients nationwide looking at investing in a franchise. The review by our attorneys will include explanation of the expectations a franchisee should have, the obligations the franchisee has to the franchisor, any concerns that the attorney reviewing the documents may have and requirements imposed on the franchisee that are not typical and that may present a concern. All of our franchisee services are at a flat fee, so you know up front exactly what your expense will be. Expect around $2000 for a thorough single unit review.
