Trademarks & Corporate Services


Our attorneys regularly register and monitor trademarks for startups, established brands, pre-franchise and franchisor clients. A trademark is an key element to the franchise process, and the importance of getting a mark is vitally important to our clients. We have hundreds of registered trademarks that are actively being monitored and pending with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). We offer competitive flat fee registration prices and will monitor the application at no additional charge. If your application is met with an office action or challenger to your mark, our trademark attorneys will navigate the waters through the USPTO, the TTAB and in federal court if necessary. Check out our Trademark Services in the TFF Store (add link to Store).

General Counsel Services

Most startup and emerging businesses don’t have the need and can’t afford to hire a full-time in-house counsel. We provide general counsel services to our clients. We learn your business and stay up to date on your transactional needs, business development, potential disputes and long-term objectives. We can function as a general, in-house counsel without unnecessary costs, and offer personalized service. We provide our clients with the flexibility and convenience of having us “on call” when they need us. We aren’t a big firm looking to increase the bottom line at our clients’ expense. Instead, we look for long-term relationships with our clients so that we understand your priorities. Once we learn your business and objectives, we will pinpoint legal issues before they become a problem and discuss an appropriate budget for your ongoing legal needs.

Contracts & Business Transactions

The Franchise Firm’s attorneys advise pre-franchise and franchise businesses and individuals on a wide variety of issues that are involved in or affect their day-to-day activities as well as significant transactions and events as they occur. Our transactional attorneys have a wealth of experience in contract negotiation and drafting for the transactions our clients encounter while doing business here and around the world, including: ownership relationship documents, including partnership agreements, operating agreements, and buy-sell agreements; asset purchase agreement and stock purchase agreements; joint venture agreements and strategic alliance agreements; employee, consulting and independent contractor agreements; professional services agreements; on-disclosure, non-solicitation, non-competition and assignment of inventions agreements; technology development and licensing agreements; financing and leasing agreements; web site user agreements and policies.
