Finding a Niche: One Key to Solo Success and Happiness

By Roland W. Baggott III

I am a sole practitioner. My firm is located in Nashville, Tennessee and my practice focuses on franchising. Predominantly, I represent franchisors in commercial litigation, including termination litigation and business tort litigation; trademark registration, prosecution and defense, including infringement litigation and litigation in front of the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board; regulatory compliance, including the annual updating and registration of their Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC); and in business transactions. Occasionally, I will represent a franchisee. However, my representation of franchisees is usually limited to pre-purchase review of the franchisor's UFOC or rescission litigation based upon the franchisor's fraud.
