Faegre & Benson LLP

Faegre & Benson understands that Franchising is one of the most dynamic and exciting growth vehicles in our global economy. To achieve its objectives in the challenging, yet rewarding, franchise world, a franchisor must partner with a legal team that not only understands franchising, but also takes the time to understand the franchisor's business and objectives.

Few law firms embrace this approach with more passion and commitment than Faegre & Benson. We know the franchise business top to bottom, including the complexities created by the overlap of state and federal law. We also understand the challenges of building and operating a franchise system. It's your business. You need answers and we'll provide unparalleled legal support. We also understand what it means to be a part your team - finding solutions that allow you to meet your objectives.
