Houston Franchise & Licensing Law

The Houston Franchise & Licensing Attorney Law Firm is a law firm uniquely skilled in franchising.  We represent both franchisors and franchisees.  Our expertise and experience make us the lawyers of choice for clients throughout Houston, the rest of Texas, and the United States.

Clients rely on us to review complex franchise disclosure documents and related agreements, and they also count on us to provide the one-stop business counseling they need as their operations expand.

With many years of experience, we can assist management to optimize functional connectivity amongst its franchisees, licensees and dealers, and amongst its network of systems in a multi branded organization. We will help you eliminate/reduce bottlenecks and blockages that may be retarding your growth and efficiency.

The rules governing franchising and licensing are far more complex than they might appear, highly regulated by the government.  Franchisors and licensors have obligations and disclosure requirements, and franchisees and licensees have duties and responsibilities.  We have business lawyers with extensive franchise and licensing experience.

Houston Licensing Law

What's the difference between franchising vs. licensing a business?  Is a license business model really different from a franchise business model?  The starting point in the analysis is to consider the legal aspects, then the business aspects.  A franchise always includes a license of the brand and operating methods, along with assistance (training, an operations manual, etc.) or support (providing advice, quality control, inspections, etc.).  And a license that is supposedly "not a franchise" and even states this, but contains franchise legal elements, is a disguised, illegal franchise with significant legal ramifications and risk.

In considering the legal aspects, begin with the following premise that applies to both options:

If you put someone into business (or allow them to use your business brand/mark) this transaction will normally be a regulated activity, subject to substantial penalties for noncompliance.  If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck.  This guiding legal principle (and common sense), coupled with the business aspects of selling a franchise vs. a license will answer most questions.
