Franchise law applies to franchisors like McDonald's ®, who allow you to buy and operate a business using the franchise trademarks, name, and business methods. In return, you, the franchisee, get the name recognition value and reputation of the franchisor. A franchise lawyer will make sure the franchisor treats you fairly. Franchises can be expensive, and when you buy one you are gambling on the franchisor's success.
