Buying a Franchise

Are you considering the purchase of a franchise? Nobles & Sigman works with Buyers and Sellers of franchises throughout New England. We provide reasonably priced legal services and diligently safeguard your interests throughout all phases of the transaction. We focus on closing the deal on time and making the process as smooth and stress free as possible for you.

Often, rather than purchasing a new franchise from a franchisor, prospective business owners look for an opportunity to purchase a pre-existing franchise location. Instead of starting from scratch, these buyers are attracted to an established franchise location with a loyal customer base.

As your franchise attorneys, our primary service is to provide a complete review of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and Franchise Agreement. In addition, we negotiate, draft and review all other necessary documents in the business purchase process including:

  • Letter of intent
  • Due diligence and franchise qualifications
  • Purchase and sale agreement
  • Bill of Sale
  • Non-compete agreement
  • Liens, mortgages, promissory notes and any other documents necessary to effect the transfer
  • Lease and lease assignment
  • Closing documents

Our partnership doesn’t end after the purchase is complete. Nobles & Sigman franchise attorneys also provide affordable ongoing business ownership services.
