Lives and Breathes Franchising—from the FRANCHISEES perspective!
You are nimble, creative, and the very definition of an American success story. Your singular focus is, and should be, running your business.
Our singular focus is representing franchisees in every facet of their relationships with their franchisors. For almost 20 years, Dady & Gardner, P.A. has done nothing else. Because of this laser-like focus, and our extraordinary commitment to excellence, the lawyers at Dady & Gardner, P.A. have been ranked as the top franchisee lawyers in America by every publication that does such a ranking, including Chambers USA, which ranks our named partners, J. Michael Dady and Ronald K. Gardner, as two of the three highest rated franchisee lawyers in America. This type of recognition comes from the ten dedicated lawyers at Dady & Gardner having more than 120 years of combined experience in doing nothing but representing franchisees.
The franchisors that you deal with rely on the advice of lawyers who know and understand franchising. In your relationships with your franchisors, shouldn’t you be doing the same? As a franchise operator who has invested so much, your risks are simply too high to be doing anything less.
Whether you are contemplating expansion, contraction, succession issues, or are faced with an immediate and unexpected challenge with respect to the conduct of your franchisor, let Dady & Gardner put their knowledge to work for you.
We urge you to contact us for our complimentary report “Top Ten Things That a Franchisee Should look for in a Franchise Agreement.”
