Canadian Based Manufacturer Seeking Specialized Franchise Lawyer

Posted last month

**Job Title:** Specialized Franchise Lawyer Needed for Canadian Manufacturing Company

**Description:**
We are a Canadian-based manufacturing company seeking a specialized franchise lawyer to advise us on U.S. franchise laws and regulations. Our primary need is to understand how these laws impact our business model, particularly in relation to setting up non-franchised dealers across the United States who will use our corporate trademark and be designated as authorized dealers, not franchises.

**Responsibilities:**
- Provide legal advice on U.S. franchise laws and regulations for a Canadian company.
- Assess our business model and advise on compliance with federal and state franchise laws.
- Assist in structuring agreements and documentation for non-franchised dealers using our corporate trademark.
- Ensure that our dealer network setup does not inadvertently establish a franchise relationship.
- Advise on best practices for protecting our corporate trademark while working with non-franchised dealers.
- Provide ongoing legal support as needed.

**Requirements:**
- Proven experience as a franchise lawyer, with a strong understanding of U.S. franchise laws and regulations.
- Experience advising international clients, particularly Canadian companies, is preferred.
- Strong knowledge of trademark laws and their application in dealer agreements.
- Ability to provide clear, actionable legal advice.
- Excellent communication and negotiation skills.
- Licensed to practice law in the United States.

**Preferred Qualifications:**
- Experience working with non-franchised dealer networks.
- Familiarity with various state franchise laws and regulations.
- Previous work with clients in the manufacturing sector.
- Experience advising Canadian companies on U.S. legal matters.


Please submit your resume, a brief cover letter explaining your relevant experience, and any case studies or examples of similar work you have done in the past.

We look forward to working with a skilled professional who can help us navigate the complexities of franchise law and support our business growth.
