Whether your organization has an original technology, a trademarked brand, or a unique distribution system that lends itself to partnering opportunities, Franchising & Licensing will lead you directly to fresh revenue streams—with no missteps or omissions.

Combining a big-picture approach with an unprecedented level of depth and detail, Franchising and Licensing supplies a rare mixture of business acumen, legal expertise, and financial insight. And it’s now updated to explain new regulations and legal decisions, new strategies and trends, and deliver new sample agreements, checklists, and questionnaires.

The fourth edition shows you how to:

• Prepare a comprehensive manual that serves as the foundation of your operations and training programs.

• Set up quality control systems for maintaining your brand or image, and assembling the field staff required to enforce them.

• Comply with record-keeping requirements that will protect your organization in a dispute or a federal or state regulatory investigation.

• Protect your intellectual property, including trade secrets, patents, copyrights, and other intangible assets.

• Develop sophisticated sales and marketing plans that uniquely target both the franchisee and the ultimate consumer.

• Gain access to the affordable debt and equity capital you need to maintain your growth plan.

• Comply with corporate governance and reporting obligations in today’s post–Sarbanes-Oxley environment.

• Assess opportunities for mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and other alternatives to franchising

• And much more!
