One of the first questions a new franchisor client asks is, “Do you use forms?”
Using “forms” gets a bad rap. “Forms” does not have to mean “canned, generic boilerplate where the user just fills in blanks.”
I have 24+ years of experience giving legal advice, negotiating transactions, and drafting outstanding legal documents. These documents have been reviewed by hundreds of attorneys, some of them the most well-known franchisee attorneys in the world. The documents have been examined and approved hundreds of times by government regulators. So no, when I begin drafting a new franchise agreement, I do not sit in front of a blank page (or computer screen) and start by printing at the top of the page, “Franchise Agreement.”
I start with a complete, organized library of proven, successful documents. The documents span dozens of industries. They include almost every variation you can conceive.
I don’t stop there:
This allows me to produce franchise documents that meet the highest standards of the legal profession, quickly and effectively, for a very low cost.
Do I use forms? Yes. I use them the right way. That means you get the best results.
