Franchise Finance

Vorys is recognized for its sophisticated franchise finance counsel, where our clients include franchisors, franchisees and regional lending institutions. We have recently represented a regional bank owned franchise company in the creation of their franchise lending documents, implementation of a thorough process in connection with the franchise loans, and documentation of dozens of franchise lending transactions throughout the country.
