Firm partner Glenn Peterson has extensive experience advising franchisees and franchisors in creating new business ventures and resolving disputes. He has also served as an expert witness in litigated franchise disputes.

Based near Sacramento, our franchising law attorneys receive cases from throughout California. We have a proficiency in both business franchising regulations and more general business laws. Our lawyers not only assist companies and individuals with litigation; we also serve as “in-house counsel,” providing guidance in franchising disputes that can prevent future litigation.

Many Complex Past Cases

Partner Glenn Peterson is well-known for his work in franchise law. He has handled the defense of fitness magnate Joe Weider’s company in a franchising dispute and multiple trademark infringement actions on behalf of fast food franchisors. With extensive experience in everything from intellectual property law to alternative dispute resolution, Mr. Peterson can handle any issues that may arise in franchising litigation.

In all of their work, our Sacramento franchising law attorneys work directly with clients, never passing them off to paralegals or assistants. We maintain a very professional and meticulous practice, but also believe it is important to put a human face on the practice of law.
