Franchise and Distribution

Representing companies in both the emerging and middle markets, Giannascoli & Kent has deep roots in franchise and distribution law:

  • Sophisticated Counsel. We represent franchisors and distributors in federal and state regulatory issues, mergers, acquisitions, implementation of growth and exit strategies, financing, employment, intellectual property, litigation, and tax matters.
  • Personal Experience. Tom Kent served as in-house counsel and Director of Center Development for an international franchise company before entering the private practice of law. We bring this practical, personal experience to bear in our legal counsel.
  • Business Solutions. We guide companies who are considering franchising to determine if franchising is appropriate as a growth strategy. When appropriate, we position existing business platforms to achieve effective and profitable franchising.
  • Business Growth. We partner with existing franchisors and distributors who require a more sophisticated, responsive, and proactive approach to the needs of their business.
