Orlando Franchising Attorney
Representing Franchisees In Florida
It can be exciting to join a franchise, especially if the company is a well-known one. You may be tempted to simply sign the contract and move on with your preparations without consulting a lawyer. However, it is critical to have a detailed understanding of the legal agreements you are making. Joining a franchise is typically a significant financial commitment, and one from which you cannot simply walk away.
At the Law Offices of David H. Trevett, P.L., we are available to review agreements for Florida business owners who are considering joining a franchise. It is important to have an Orlando franchising lawyer review the agreement once it is drafted, because franchise agreements tend to be very one-sided. They are usually intended to protect the best interests of the franchisor and not the franchisee.
Franchise Agreement Lawyer Serving Kissimmee, Lake Nona And Beyond
Prospective franchise owners must have a clear understanding of their rights, responsibilities and obligations when it comes to operating a franchise. Such issues can include:
- Defining the limits of the franchise
- Reviewing the details of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
- Analyzing the scope of financial commitment
- Determining how much support the franchisee can expect to receive from the franchisor
Dealing with all the legal documentation can be a laborious task. Our law firm is here to advise and guide you through the complexities. We are familiar with the Federal Trade Commission requirements for FDDs, such as the requirement that this document be given to the prospective franchisee at least 14 days prior to the payment of any franchise fees or the signing of an agreement.
