Franchise Law and Business Practice

Legal preparation for your franchise or business is critical. You want to make sure that your Franchise Disclosure Documents and agreements accurately reflect your business operations and are structured to help you accomplish your goals. You want to comply with the Amended FTC Rule and state franchise laws to protect yourself from legal claims and investigations by regulatory agencies. You want to take the appropriate steps now in an effort to avoid future liability. At Carter & Tani, we are lawyers who know how to effectively accomplish your goals.

We will help you take the proper legal steps to protect your investments and plan for the future.

We are experienced and effective franchise and business attorneys, with over 25 years working with franchising. Our practice is concentrated on representing established franchisors and subfranchisors (master franchisees), assisting new franchise companies in starting a franchise program, and representing franchisees and business owners in all types of franchise and business transactions. Contact our experienced franchise attorneys for assistance with franchise and related business law matters, including:

We represent national and regional franchisors, and can help you ensure that you are in compliance with all state franchise laws. At times companies that offer franchises don't realize they are selling franchises and must comply with the relevant laws. We can help you understand when franchise laws apply to your business venture.

Your legal representation at the outset and throughout the life of your business can be the most important investment you will make.

By offering thorough preparation, investigation, research, and sound legal advice, we strive to provide the legal groundwork that will enable you to expand your business. As lawyers who focus exclusively on the transactional aspects of franchise and business law, we work with our clients to find solutions quickly and to resolve legal matters efficiently. We work as cost-effectively as possible, and keep our overhead costs low in order to preserve competitive hourly rates.
