Filings states require that a franchisor alert its independent franchise board of the franchisor's intent to sell.

We are familiar with filing laws and will work to ensure you have the necessary documentation to operate or sell your franchise in any state.

Franchise Relationship Laws

If you operate a franchise in a state with franchise relationship laws, you must understand its full implications before doing business. It establishes limits on a franchisor's rights to terminate, renew, or transfer its franchise. Our accountants are ready to review whether your state has franchise relationship laws and how best to approach them.
