Faegre Baker Daniels LLP
At Faegre Baker Daniels, clients come first. They drive us to boldly deliver trusted partnerships with experienced lawyers and consultants, peace of mind through time-tested expertise, and insights to help solve business and legal challenges. We courageously innovate to provide creative legal and consulting solutions and world-class service delivery and client experience from 13 locations in the U.S., U.K. and China.
Within our franchise team, our objective is to make a difference for franchisors — to help them identify opportunities and overcome challenges at every stage of growth. Our passion for franchising, nearly 300 years of collective experience and teamwork approach distinguish us from other law firms. We develop innovative solutions tailored to each client’s needs and provide comprehensive advice across the broad spectrum of issues and challenges franchisors face — whether advising on franchise M&A/strategic growth opportunities, international expansion, privacy, data protection and cybersecurity, or anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws and regulations; drafting FDDs and managing related state filings; working to resolve disputes with franchisees; helping navigate system expansion and encroachment concerns; managing brand positioning and protection; advising on supply chain issues; or helping franchisors keep up to speed on changes to the franchise legal and business landscapes. Although we strive to avoid litigation, our team also has experienced litigators commonly called upon to represent franchisors in complex or "bet the company" litigation.
