Providing Legal Assistance to Franchise Owners in the Atlanta Area
Franchises can be lucrative ventures, though there is also a significant amount of risk involved. Franchise relationships can be notoriously one-sided in favor of the franchisor, so franchisees should always take the necessary steps to protect themselves both before signing the agreement and during their ownership.
One critical step for franchisees is to consult with a franchise lawyer in Atlanta who can review the prospective deal and help to protect your interests. Whether you already own a franchise or are considering buying one, contact Battleson Law, LLC, right away.
Reviewing and Enforcing Franchise Documents
At the heart of each franchise relationship is the franchise agreement, which is the contract between the franchisor and franchisee, as well as the franchise disclosure document (FDD), which provides key information about the franchise to a prospective purchaser. These are both highly complex documents that should be specially tailored to the specific franchise arrangement involved.
Before you complete a franchise transaction, it is imperative that you have an experienced Atlanta franchise attorney closely review these documents, identify any possible legal red flags, and negotiate favorable terms of the contract.
Disputes are common in franchise relationships, and you want to resolve each dispute as efficiently as possible while still protecting your interests as a franchisee. Our firm handles franchise dispute resolution and litigation involving:
- Breach of the franchise agreement
- Encroachment disputes
- Supplier discrimination
- Refusals to renew or wrongful termination
- Deceptive or unfair trade practices
