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. Franchise lawyers know the many franchise laws that prevent the franchisor from taking advantage of you. If you are considering franchising your business, a franchise lawyer can also help you with that decision.
