Larkin Hoffman Launches ‘Franchisor Attorneys’ Blog


Larkin Hoffman’s franchise and distribution practice launched its Franchisor Attorneys blog Wednesday, Jan. 4. The blog will provide information to those who are considering franchising their business and to business owners who operate emerging and mature franchise systems.

“We felt there was a need for real-time, reliable franchise information from a credible source,” Joe Fittante said. “We hope that our blog earns a reputation as a go-to resource for entrepreneurs and franchisors on topics of interest in the franchise industry.”

Fittante, along with colleagues Chuck Modell and Sawan Patel, will be the blog’s principal contributors. While the content on Franchisor Attorneys will naturally evolve over time, readers can expect posts to address common issues and faced by emerging and mature franchise companies.

For example, a recent post addresses issues a franchisor should consider when negotiating a franchise agreement.

Attorneys in Larkin Hoffman’s franchise and distribution practice advise owners of franchise companies of all sizes on issues such as methods of expansion, preparation and registration of franchise documents and the maintenance of franchise relationships. The firm represents franchisors in many industries including food and beverage, medical services, home inspection, travel, real estate, retail, hospitality and information technology.
