franchisors have learned that there are three primary benefits derived
from an association with a law firm specializing in franchising and
with extensive practical experience.
First, the firm’s background essentially eliminates any need
for a “learning curve”. Holmes Lofstrom attorneys
have dealt for years with the same types of issues you face on a daily
basis: system compliance, franchise award processing, relationships
with suppliers, territorial disputes, assignments, terminations, landlord
issues and franchisee payment problems.
Our combination of technical knowledge, breadth of experience and
expertise allows us to focus on practical solutions that integrate
legal and business considerations.
Second, as a Holmes Lofstrom client, you receive personalized
service from an attorney and paralegal working to efficiently and
cost effectively assist you. We have a conscientious and thorough
approach that involves listening and sharing the “up”
and “down-sides” as well as some alternative solutions
based on our legal and practical experiences with other large franchise
Third, if you need assistance immediately, our attorneys are available
to answer questions and provide insights whether or not they are the
attorney with whom you primarily work. So, in a “pinch”
you always have access to answers. This “depth” is very
convenient to our clients and distinguishes us from the sole practitioners
or even large firms with only one or two attorneys practicing in the
franchise law area. We occupy a distinctive place in the franchise
legal marketplace as a mid-sized law firm with expertise that focuses
on franchising, and includes, intellectual property and business transactional
We look forward to bringing our national reputation and experience
in franchise law and practices to the benefit of your system.
