Franchising & Distribution

Jones Day's Franchising & Distribution team has a long history of representing franchisors, distributors, multiunit retailers, intellectual property licensors, and rapid-growth and established companies with complex channel partner relationships in a wide variety of industries and on a wide variety of legal issues. These issues include franchising regulation and compliance, franchise agreement disputes, intellectual property, real estate, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, antitrust, dealer litigation, and commercial litigation matters.

Jones Day’s cross-border capabilities and our integrated practice approach enable us to provide creative and comprehensive solutions to the complex problems of multinational transactions. We help clients assess new ventures and structure and expand their operations to maximize business opportunities while trying to minimize legal, regulatory, and reputation risk.

Our lawyers are leaders in these areas and publish articles, appear on major television and radio networks, and speak around the world at conferences hosted by the International Franchise Association and other franchising organizations.
