FRANCHISE STRATEGY & DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Franchises are an increasingly popular area of business growth, but they bring with them a unique set of laws and regulations that both franchisers and franchisees must comply.
At The Glennon Law Firm, we work with parties on both sides of the table to protect their investments and avoid disputes that can arise with franchises.
Our managing partner, Peter Glennon, is a frequent speaker on franchise law issues and is the author of the American Bar Association Business Law Section’s annual franchise litigation update chapter. In addition, he has successfully contributed to the ABA Franchise Forum and International Franchise Association annual franchise law updates.
We understand the unique legal issues, including the intellectual property rights, confidential business information, commercial lease agreements, antitrust issues, and unique employment issues arising from and associated with the franchiser-franchisee relationship.
Our experience includes working with franchises across a variety of industries:
- Hotels and restaurants
- Various hospitality industry providers
- Convenience stores
- Pizza stores
- Real estate brokerages
- Sports and golf stores
- Business-to-business and business-to-consumer industries
Our goal is always to avoid litigation whenever possible. That said, we have an successful track record representing clients in litigation involving franchise law. Among the issues involved in the cases we’ve handled:
- Real estate lease issues
- Supplier agreements
- IP/Trademark and trade dress issues
- Non-compete agreements
- Restrictive covenants
- Vicarious liability for franchisers
- Wage and Hour and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) disputes

At the Glennon Law Firm, our team combines business acumen with legal insight to streamline the management of business, investment and professional endeavors. We apply our litigation experience to help business owners pre-empt legal problems and avoid potential pitfalls and threats to your business.
