Franchise and Business Law Attorney Chicago, Illinois

Our goal is to help each and every client grow and prosper so that they are able to achieve their business goals and aspirations. We work with our clients so as to appreciate the business as well as the legal side of every transaction.
One important aspect that differentiates us from other firms is our ability to offer fixed fees for many of the services we provide. As a small firm, we are not beholden to the billable hour as are many of our competitors. We understand that most businesses prefer the certainty of a fixed fee as opposed to the open-ended uncertainty of high hourly charges. Ask us about a fixed fee for your next legal matter.
Our clients are typically small to medium-sized businesses and include start-ups, entrepreneurs, family-owned businesses and closely-held companies. Many, but not all, of our clients, are involved in franchising either as a franchisor or as a franchisee, master franchisor, developer, dealer or distributor. But not to worry, we have lots of clients that aren’t involved in franchising at all. Our clients operate in a wide range of industries spanning automotive and transportation, financial services, restaurant including fast food, manufacturing, and specialty retail. The geographic area they operate in ranges anywhere from national to regional to state and local.
If you starting or have an existing franchise system, purchasing a franchise, selling an existing franchise or other business, or engaging in some other related business transaction then contact us. We are conveniently located in the financial district in downtown Chicago. We will be happy to speak with you!
