If you are considering the purchase of a franchise, what is the value in hiring a franchise attorney? Purchasing a franchise is an extensive, and sometimes overwhelming, process that covers business, financial and legal issues. Since a franchise is typically a significant investment and long-term commitment, you are well advised to work with professional advisors along the way. So why should you hire a franchise attorney?
When we assist prospective franchisees considering the purchase of a franchise, we review the Franchise Disclosure Document and Franchise Agreement. We want you to understand your legal obligations under the Franchise Agreement and other franchise requirements before you make the decision to purchase a franchise. We will provide you with our assessment of the information disclosed in the Franchise Disclosure Document and our assessment of your rights and obligations and the franchisor's obligations to you under the Franchise Agreement by delivering to you a written memo and discussing it with you.
