Registration and Disclosure

Franchise Registration and Disclosure Attorneys

As a franchisor, you must register your franchise and provide a Franchise Disclosure Document to your prospective franchisees. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and franchise registration states have implemented complex legal rules that apply to the offer and sale of franchises.

At Carter & Tani, Attorneys at Law, we will work with you to keep your franchise registrations and Franchise Disclosure Document in compliance with federal and state franchise laws. We have more than 25 years of experience registering franchisors nationwide. Put our experience and legal skills to work for you. Contact our franchise law attorneys for an initial consultation.

Helping Franchisors Remain in Compliance Nationwide

  • Does your Franchise Disclosure Document need some fine-tuning?
  • Are you having trouble getting your franchise registered in some states?
  • Are you missing any required disclosures under the Amended FTC Rule?
  • Are your prospects having difficulty understanding your current Franchise Disclosure Document?
  • Are you missing opportunities to reduce your risk of legal claims?

Your compliance with franchise law is critical to the success of your company. Our Chicago area lawyers will guide you through the legal procedures and the necessary steps for registration and proper disclosure of your franchise offering.

Our lawyers can review and modify your Franchise Disclosure Document to make sure that it is in full compliance with state and federal franchise laws. We can also make sure it is consistent with your franchise agreement, operations manual, website, and promotional and marketing materials, as is required by law. Although we must follow the disclosure requirements, we can work to make the content and format easier to read and more understandable by the prospective franchisee. We can also help you prepare new financial performance representations for your Franchise Disclosure Document.

Offering Training on Franchise Sales Procedures

There are rules for selling franchises under the Amended FTC Rule and state franchise registration laws that apply to franchisors and all franchise sellers, including subfranchisors/master franchisees, franchise sales personnel and franchise brokers. We can train you and your entire staff on these franchise sales procedures and disclosure requirements, at either your headquarters or our offices conveniently located in the Chicago suburb of Wheaton, Illinois.
