The key document in establishing a franchise relationship is the franchise agreement. It is the foundation of the franchise relationship, and there is no one-size-fits-all template because a well-drafted franchise agreement is the product of careful analysis of many considerations. The American Bar Association’s latest publication, The Annotated Franchise Agreement, provides an essential resource for attorneys focused on franchise law, as well as business attorneys who are relatively new to analyzing and drafting these agreements.

Harris Chernow, Chair of Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s national Franchise & Distribution Practice Group, co-authored a chapter for The Annotated Franchise Agreement, entitled Training, Site Selection Construction and Opening. Harris co-authored the chapter with Beata Krakus, Partner with Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C. in Chicago, IL.
