Franchise and Product Distribution Law

Franchise and distribution agreements are about the parties' expectations - establishing expectations, meeting expectations and dealing quickly with unmet expectations.


The Franchise and Product Distribution Law attorneys of the Davis Brown Law Firm help clients establish the right structure for meeting the expectations of all parties to the agreement. 

  • We assist companies in structuring franchise and other distribution relationships and preparing related documents.
  • We counsel franchisors and manufacturers on compliance and other franchise or distributor issues, such as registration and disclosure matters and negotiation of agreements.
  • When expectations are not met, we advise clients on the termination of these relationships.

We assist entities of all sizes and levels of experience in structuring all types of sale agency, distribution, dealership and franchise arrangements, including both domestic and international arrangements. Our membership in Lex Mundi and World Services Group gives us quick access to top professionals in more than 100 countries. These resources are invaluable in creating agency and distribution arrangements in foreign countries.


Franchise and Product Distribution Law touches upon many facets of the law, in particular marketing and advertising practices. Further, a client's line of business can create issues of consumer safety law and antitrust law.  We tap the expertise of attorneys throughout the firm to address the many issues arising from this area of practice.
