Dec 29, 2021 - Blog, Franchise Articles by |

Each year we publish dozens of articles for current and prospective franchisees. This year was no different. In 2021, our articles covered topics ranging from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic to buying a franchise at resale, and we published an in-depth three-part series on Understanding Your Franchise Agreement. Here is a look back at some of our franchisee law firm’s top articles from the year.

Franchise Terminations and Disputes

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on franchisees are undeniable. Terminations are up, and we have seen an uptick in pre- and post-termination disputes as well. Recognizing these trends, we published an article on what to expect from franchise mediation in June, and we followed up with a post on what to do when facing a dispute with your franchisor in October.

Important Considerations for Prospective Franchisees

Despite (or perhaps in response to) the effects of the pandemic, interest in franchise ownership is near an all-time high. In 2021 we published several articles intended as resources for prospective franchisees, including:

We also published articles specific to purchasing a home services, fitness or health and wellness franchise, as well as articles specific to buying a franchise out of college or after 50.
