At Weaver, Bennett & Bland, P.A. our attorneys represent both franchisees and franchisors. We provide advice and counsel as our clients enter into franchise agreements, and powerful advocacy when franchising disputes arise. Our lawyers have extensive experience in this area of law, and provide practical and cost-effective legal representation designed to promote and protect our clients’ business interests.

Weaver, Bennett, & Bland Franchising Attorneys:


When assisting a client in the acquisition or sale of a franchise, our attorneys negotiate and review Uniform Franchise Offering Circulars (UFOCs), ensuring that the terms are favorable and consistent with the franchise agreement. We will review terms regarding training, support, restrictions on territory, franchisor liability, expansion, sale, transfer, termination rights, capital, and fees for royalties, renewals, products, or services.

Lawyers in our business and commercial litigation represent parties to franchise disputes, including those involving the following:

  • Branding, trademarks, copyrights, proprietary recipes, formulas, and software
  • Customer lists and territories
  • Renewal options
  • Dual distribution, transfer, and renewal of franchise agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Royalties

If you are a franchisor, or are thinking of franchising, and would like to speak with one of our attorneys, please call 704-844-1400 or e-mail our Matthews office to schedule a consultation. Our lawyers serve clients throughout Monroe, Matthews, and all of North Carolina, representing all parties to franchise operations, including small start-ups and the franchise of existing businesses, restaurant franchises, and those in other industries. It is always our goal to protect our client’s interest and investment.
