Structuring

If you are interested in offering a business opportunity, it is important to develop the right offering structure.  This requires your team to work closely with your counsel to create legal solutions that fit your needs. The attributes of your offering that you choose to include or avoid will have a great impact on whether it is a business opportunity, franchise or neither.  But the legal structure of your offering is important for many other reasons, including, for example:

  • Affording opportunity for multi unit operators;
  • Allowing for variations in fee structure;
  • Enabling growth, modification and evolution of the offering;
  • Preparing for turnover, and transfers;
  • Protecting intellectual property and discouraging copycats;
  • Positioning the system for purchase, and perhaps a public offering;
  • Dealing with changes to laws and regulations;
  • Use or development of trademarks, copyright, confidential infomation and trade secrets;
  • Handling changes in liability exposure; and
  • Including multi-level marketing aspects.
