Main Areas.

Florida Franchise System

If you're not sure you want to form a nationwide system, or have budgetary constraints but still want to franchise, we offer Florida specific franchising services. 

Nationwide Franchise System

The Federal Trade Commission oversees all of the actions taken with franchises. Don't leave your future with the FTC up to chance. It's so important to hire attorneys to handle your franchise system.

Franchise Disclosure Document Review and Drafting

Franchise Disclosure Documents are a massive contract between franchisee and franchisor. It's important to have these documents both drafted and reviewed by experienced franchise attorneys to highlight any violations or potential problems.  

Franchise Planning 

If you're not certain how to go about planning out your franchise, our Orlando franchise lawyers offer planning services to help you get an overview of what your franchise system will look like.

Why Franchise?

When you franchise your business, you're expanding your brand while protecting your intellectual property. But before you take the plunge, it's crucial to have an experienced franchise attorney on your side. A franchise lawyer helps you navigate the legal complexities of franchising and ensure you avoid violations. We can also help you draft franchise agreements and franchise disclosure documents. 

When developing and growing a franchise, it's important to work with an experienced franchise attorney to avoid pitfalls along the way. One Federal Trade Commission violation can be as much as $11,000. Say you have 100 franchisees. One mistake in your contract could cost around $1,100,000, if not more, in addition to hundreds of thousands in legal fees. 

The franchise lawyers at Forward have years of experience assisting clients with all aspects of franchising their businesses. We can help you draft franchise agreements, and register your franchise with the appropriate state agencies. 

Franchise Safely

 When you franchise your business, you essentially give someone else the right to use your business name and model in exchange for a fee. This can be a great way to expand your business quickly with minimal effort. However, there are some potential risks you should understand.

One of the most common mistakes made by franchisees is not hiring a franchise attorney. A good franchise attorney will have a thorough understanding of the franchise agreement and can help you avoid any potential legal problems.

Without an attorney, you could inadvertently sign away your rights to the franchise or end up in a lengthy and expensive legal battle. So, if you're considering franchising your business, consult a franchise attorney first.

The Start

First, you speak with our Business Development Team. During that conversation, the representative will learn more about your business, you needs, and determine how our attorneys can best assist you. They'll create a custom quote for you and collect the appropriate deposit. 


You are fully protected by our 100% Money-Back Guarantee.

If, for any reason, after meeting with our attorneys in the kickoff meeting, you do not wish to continue with our services or we advise you that your matter is not in your best interest to pursue, we will immediately process a full refund of any deposit or fees paid.

What They Say.

Jared helped my wife and I with a business and real estate transaction after he was recommended by author/lawyer Joel Ankney.

He showed a strong commitment and ability to adapt throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal assistance.

Austin P.

After researching many of the Business Law firms in Orlando, we ultimately selected Forward Law to represent us. I had confirmation this was the right choice when one of our investors indicated that their attorney felt our Offering Documents were among the most through they had ever seen. You should get what you pay for and we certainly did. I highly recommend you have them at your side.

How much does it cost? 

Depending whether you're the franchisee or franchisor, our franchise attorneys offer a range of options for your needs. We can draft systems or review documents on a flat fee, or provide negotiations and review for hourly fees. Speak with our business development team to discuss your needs, and they'll provide you more information on our pricing and services. 

Why do you require deposits?

Simply put, we want to be a transparent as possible with our pricing. The deposits we take generally reflect either the full cost of the service for flat fees, or a the first section of the project for hourly fees. This means that our potential clients have a good understanding of the fees associated before the service even starts. Additionally, requiring these deposits allows our attorneys more time to focus on client work, and provide that extra meeting, or work ahead of schedule. 

We still understand how it can be intimidating to hire an attorney without meeting them first. That's why we offer a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. If you do not wish to continue with our services after the first meeting with the attorney for any reason, or our attorneys inform you that your matter may not be worth pursuing, we will provide a full refund.
