Why Use a Franchise Attorney?
Sometimes clients contact us hoping to save money after having started a Federal Disclosure Document (FDD, formerly referred to as the UFOC) using an online kit and want an attorney to provide that "final review." Others use their regular business attorney to look over a Franchise Agreement they may be reviewing for a possible purchase and think that this may be sufficient for a satisfactory review of any pitfalls that may exist for the unsuspecting franchisee. Franchising is a unique creature that share some of the aspects of many business deals, but a Franchise lawyer has experience that combines familiarity with trademarks, branding, federal disclosure requirements that can allow insight that online kits or unsuspecting business lawyers may miss.
